late garden pics

Post  landarch on 9/12/2016, 8:17 pm

Well the summer crops are winding down and it seems to be a slow start to the fall garden.

Below is a typical box...cukes dead and gone in the back along the trellis, older beets in front either a lack of germination, dampening off, or insect damage.  Newer beets in middle...same problems.

peppers last year were thick-walled and 4-lobed...here's one with only two lobes...weird year with many mis-shapen peppers.

two decent bell peppers

ripped out diseased cukes about a month ago...these were new seedlings to hopefully get fruit within a 60 day window before first frost...disease set in immediately...new growth is green but time is running out quickly.

trombone squash forming

bed of fall buttercruch lettuce.

I've grown beets for years, fall and spring, and this is the first problem with insects.  Find a leaf thats been folded in half and find one of these.

Health Kick tomatoes sill going strong...not bad for a determinate.  Here is a cluster of around 10-12 tomatoes...several clusters like this per plant.

view of my SFG boxes, containers, grow bags, etc.

Nice pics, Landarch!  I too had some strange crunched up.shapes on some of my bell peppers.....no probs with banana peppers.  

Overall better than last year for me on all levels, except big tomatoes.  Just didn't plant well....

My fall beets are in the same boat. And it seems like all the replanted thinned ones didn't make it. Weird. It might have been too hot and maybe they needed shade cover.

I am having serious germination probs with my lettuces.  Probably won't happen.  Just taking too long.
