YAY! and things are kickin in...a little late but better than none

Post  chocolatepop on 9/3/2010, 12:22 pm

So, I started much of the garden late because of the fire, but things are starting to pep up!

monster trellis with maters, the tomatoe plant non the end are some yellow pear, they fell over because there was no more support, the trellis is 8.5 ft tall


green zebra


Pineapple

moonflower versus sweet potato, who will reign?


Cukes dying from downy mildew, this was my crappy crop this year, cukes and I just can't get along


Sugar babies



whole melon/pumpkin trellis


peppers still going hot and heavy!



Chocolate congo


Hatch chili


Balloon


Big Jim Numex


the bigger of the two acron squash I have, stupid late planting, stupid PM, stupid fire...


and the best part: Bean Trellis! I got 3lbs of beans today! I also go 3lbs of volunteer cross bred by nature tomatoes. they range from about slight smaller than a dime, yp to a quarter. Time to get drying!




The only flowers that were saved from the fire (most were seed started). Of course my daughter, the princess, picked everything out...PINK


fall seedlings: beets, deeetttrrroooiittt red, bullseye, and golden

Well, my mother in laws tomatoes are out performing mine 10 fold, but she used all hybrid and determinates, so hers are done and mine are just starting.

I LOVE the T-trellis!!! I know now that some varieties (the pear) may need more than just one square. i planted it near the edge and there is a very angry flower in that square...

Ironic thing is, I have NO idea what to do with all these peppers!

Love it! Someday I will have a bean trellis like that! I feel the same way about the peppers...my sweet peppers didn't produce, but the two kinds of hot peppers I had sure did and I haven't had enough ways to use them.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE your bean trellis!!! (I'd love to try something like that, but I fear I'd have to get approval from our architectural review board... sounds like paperwork to me.....)
