So, I have posted all of my pictures on Facebook this year, you can follow the link and see how things have progressed
At the end of the season for 2012, I put much of the plants that I had grown, minus the corn, into a compost. Which I did by digging a hole in the middle of my garden, burying all the plants and then covering them with the dirt I had dug up.
The first harvest is looking really good so far! On to making pasta sauce!
The tomato plants are still completely covered in tomatoes, in the coming weeks I should be getting a lot more.
Following the aphid infection, my cucumbers didn’t recover as well as I would like. I trimmed a lot of leaves off to prevent the disease from spreading, that appears to have stunted the plant. I have two cucumbers that aren’t growing much. Maybe next year.. My corn and tomatoes are doing amazing though! The corn stopped growing at about 6 foot (some are smaller), which was attributed to the bush blocking the sun during the first few stages of growth. I have about 25 ears of corn . My tomatoes are going insane! My early girl tomato plant is covered in tomatoes! I am not really sure why my big beef doesn’t have any yet. The hot weather just broke loose around here so i’m hoping the bees get to all the flowers on the plant.
