Summer Garden – Four Week Update

With the expanded garden space, I felt compelled a week ago to plant more vegetables. Unfortunately, I was not able to find much at the local Home Depots or Lowe’s and some stores had completely stopped stocking vegetables.

I did manage to find some more bell peppers, basil, tomatoes, and fresh batches of Georgia collards. These were planted last weekend and all seem to be doing well. The new plantings have doubled my backyard garden.

Here are the old plantings from a month ago.

The Black Beauty eggplant which had just fruited two weeks ago has grown significantly.

The basils are doing well and have been regularly harvested. I also planted another Sweet Basil plant last weekend.

And I started seeing flowers a few days ago. So, hopefully fruits are coming soon.

Cantaloupe plants have also flourished. Plenty of flowers but no fruits yet.

Squash plants were doing well but has declined in the past week. Looks like the squash vine borers have been eating away at the base.

I did manage to harvest one good size squash before their demise.

Super 100 tomatoes have grown significantly. They are now housed in cages made from 3 feet tall, 2 inch x 4 inch welded wire fencing.
