How's Your Vegetable Garden Doing?
This has been an interesting year for my garden. Everything (ok, except the Basil) started out with a bang! Now, it's as though time has come to a halt. Tomatoes have been green and getting every so slightly bigger. Have had a handful of Sungold, which are incredibly flavorful but that is about it. The carrots are doing well in the planter box but they are a good 6 weeks before I will see any orange popping out. We've had super hot, then unseasonably cool, today is nice summer day, in the 80's. I did use a different soil this year, however I used organic fertilizer and my ever helpful coffee grounds and eggshells. Always use the water meter before watering as well. Guess this is just one of those years when things will be late? How is it by you? I know many parts of the country have extremely hot weather. Is that affecting your garden? I'd be interested to hear about your success or not so successful. Photo is the carrot planter with a few Nasturtiums in between.
