This is more of an August tour, but the first thing I noticed this morning was another shredded piece of corn and a mess on the ground.
|Last night I put cayenne pepper on all the corn silks after seeing one piece or shredded corn to try to deter the squirrels or whatever is eating my corn. But I could not reach this one. Stinky squirrels.|
|I am not sure which tomato plants made it in this bed, but I am thinking this is going to be pink brandywine, it is pretty large.|
|The sweet potatoes are taking over the bed. I only planted 2 in here and I can hardly keep the vines in the 4X8 bed.|
|There are several more sweet potato plants in this smaller bed and they are taking over too. The corn behind are getting close to being ready.|
|This is the Early Girl on the right and the Chocolate Cherry on the left with beans around the bottom, and 2 more sweet potato plants. I planted them anywhere I could find room.|
|Sugar snap peas are climbing the vines, though they have not enjoyed the heat lately. They all are surviving being transplanted in newspaper pots. I have tried to keep them shaded as much as possible.|
|There are a few small watermelons out their. I don't know if they will have time to make it but we will see. There are lots of vines, but I think something was eating the babies as soon as they got about golf ball size.|
The August garden seems to be doing well even though some things have been started late. I am sure my harvests will grow larger in the weeks and months ahead before frost in October. And I plan to try to extend some things with my pop up green house and maybe some covers.
Happy August Gardening!
