What's GROWING on right now.

Not too much has changed in the past couple weeks as far as the garden is concerned. I've reduced the amount of powdery mildew on the plants by cutting leaves and by doing a milk spraying. It's still there, but I'm producing zucchini so I'm not worrying too much.

My cucumber vines are plentiful and flowering, but not producing any veggies. I'm perplexed. It was suggested that I try a fertilizer high in phosphorus - the middle number displayed on fertilizer. I'm going to have to try it. I have a feeling that my acorn squash is going to be a slow producer as well. I haven't seen anything on the vine.

My beans are producing modestly, but enough for me to pluck em off a couple times a week for a small serving - which is good enough for me.

Most of my tomatoes are still green, but I do have one or two cherry tomato plants that are beginning the process of turning red. I'm excited to share them once they have fully ripened.

I haven't picked lettuce or kale for a while - I might try doing another harvest and refrigerating it for a couple days to see if it cuts any of the bitterness.

My peppers are growing slow and steady. Again, not a huge crop, but good enough for me.

I'm looking forward to figuring out what my fall crop can be and starting some seeds:)

What's growing in your gardens?
