New pics for June

Post  kamigh on 6/19/2017, 4:23 pm

Here are some new pics to show how things are moving along. Here's my row of eggplants.  They are a little chewed up but producing!

Listada eggplants (I think)

My pepper patch.  Way too many mini bells (why did I think I needed all those???) Much nacho jalapenos for stuffed jalapenos and salsa, hots for drying and paprikas for drying.

Some cayenne peppers waiting to get red.

More June Pics

Post  kamigh on 6/19/2017, 4:38 pm


Above is my out of control tomato area.  Two cherries (Sungold and Large red cherry) growing up the trellis and a paste and Juliet laughing at my feeble attempts to cage them.  More Texas tomato cages for next year!!!!  Next to that is my little spaghetti squash trying to grow under the tomatoes.  Below is me showing off my first two eggplants of the season - Traviata.  I crazily spent $6.95 for 20 seeds from High Mowing Farms but they have lived up to my expectations and then some.  Perfect, beautiful eggplants and I've got about 3 more growing on one plant now.


My much more tamed tomato patch using the Texas tomato cages.  Great yields and no problems finding all the tomatoes!

What a beautifully designed garden! I envy you such a flat and sunny area for your beds, you've taken good advantage of such a space. And those eggplants are gorgeous! Here in New England, we are way behind you, so I'll live vicariously through your garden for a while. Very Happy

2018 Update

Post  kamigh on 5/11/2018, 1:59 pm

I've finally found some time to get out in the garden again this year and am sharing some pictures.  It's not perfect and there are weeds and some stuff laying around but it's real and hopefully going to give me some nice veggies this year.

Moved the tomato bed and have my 6 Texas Tomato cages set up - they are amazing.  Getting ready to order 6 more for this year.



Already have a few tomatoes starting.  I put these plants out in the beginning of March in wall-o-waters.  They still got a little ragged from the weather but are bouncing back pretty well.


My brassica bed.  Already harvested a bit of the kale.  Gave up on the high hoops and just have the fabric laying on top of the plants for now.  Two days after planting out most plants were nibbled to the stalk by a nasty rabbit (since caught and disposed of by my neighbor who didn't take well to it decimating his pansies).  As you can see, the plants have come back nicely.


My sad little onion bed.  I've got not quite 2 dozen that are doing okay.  Our new rescue puppy is still learning his manners and dug in this bed quite a bit at first.


I moved this trellis myself so that I can put some squash in here.  I'm going to try growing some in August but of course I caved and bought a few at the local nursery, so I'll see how they do.  I wanted the trellis here in the first place last year and got talked out of it.  Now I'm doing it the way I want!


Second trellis is still in it's original place.  The bed has some ants in it which I have a terrible reaction to the bites, so I've asked my lawn guy to move it for me when he has some time.  


View of the whole garden without any photoshop or cleaning up. Still have some weeding to do and some things to pick up.  New puppy loves to be out here with me and knows I love this spot.  He brings me things I wish he wouldn't!!!!  Next project will be to build some structures to hold up the garden fabric so I don't have to just lay it on the plants.  Bed on bottom right has my pepper plants and the middle bed is supposed to be for flowers but right now it's housing some volunteer dill.  I've already picked some of that dill and enjoyed it in some homemade Tzatziki with dinner last night!  Only things left to go in the garden in the short term will be some cucumbers, the squash I bought, bush beans (direct seed) and some annual flowers.

Your garden gives us joy to look at, and I hope it is giving you joy to work in as well.  
A few weeds and stuff out of place, ahh well, life.  Look at my garden pictures and you will see a lot more mess.  Razz

I actually preparing to readjust for the summer crops. temperature is hitting near 90's. Fought off the harlequin bugs with some dr. Bronner's soap, then later hand vacuum cleaner when they were attacking my turnips, mustards, and kale. They seem to have disappeared. My lettuce and spinach are bolting now. These are some pictures about 2 weeks ago. The peas are putting out a lot of shells. no picture because I ate them all.

Kamigh, I have been catching up on this thread.  You have a fabulous garden!  I hope you don't have fire ants... they're nasty little critters. 

has55, how did you create the hoop frames for your garden?

I purchased my hoopbender from this site thanks to GloriaG sharing with me info about this wonderful tool. I used the larger ones to do my portable greenhouse. my poles ends are inserted into 1" PVC pipes. I did not do the bottom as in the picture. This way in the winter if I covered with plastic it won't blow over. you would anchor the bottom down if you built it like the picture. I didn't want to spend the extra money.
