Hillbilly Garden Update

Well , the lettuce and spinach failed miserably ... and the cayennes have yet to appear . But everything else is freakin' fantastic !! Alright , the green beans aren't overtaking the world , and neither are the onions . But I've got tomatoes on almost every plant , the jalapenos are loaded , and the cukes , zukes , and acorn squash are all setting fruit . Even the "found" potatoes are coming up . <<somebody left a bag of yukon gold seed taters sitting on a trash can in the WM parking lot . THANKS !>> I'm very surprised that the garden is doing this well , considering it has never been cultivated ... or maybe that's why it's doing so well . Either way , I will soon be enjoying Nature's Bounty from my land .

the wonders of diversity. :) that you get something for your efforts.

onions have struggled here this year too. much my own fault, but also that they have not gotten much sunshine until this month. we'll eat them anyways no matter how small they may be. we like green onions just as much as those that have bulbed out.

we've not got fruit on any squash or cucumbers, but they are coming along ok. recent sunshine and rains have helped a lot.

great!

congrats! it is a joy that is for sure...
we've been feasting on strawberries for a while now. they are now finally getting to the end (of this round). *whew!* now i know i do not need to plant any more patches of these. i hadn't any extra worms/worm poo to add to these gardens this season and didn't expect a very large harvest, but they came through well enough.
yesterday we could eat the first few pea pods.
tomato plants are growing great, some flowers are peeking out. the many varieties of beans are mostly up and growing. only a few spots to fill in. some weeding is needed here or there yet overall things are in pretty good shape.

Round 1: Hornworms zero , Snag 2 . Got the little buggers before they did much damage . I'm a bit surprised that they showed up , as much as the soil has been tilled/disturbed . The garden is right at the edge of where I did some semi-major earthmoving to build my shop , plus having been tilled to prepare it for gardening .
