Hard to believe it's halfway through July and we've hardly had any sun here at the beach. I'm not one to complain about cool days, but the garden had suffered as a result. It looks great, but it hasn't exploded like it did last year and actually, I think it's for the better. We've been able to keep on top of the caterpillars (none yet!) and aphids and haven't lost a plant so far. The slower growth means less overcrowding too and we're hoping the tomatoes last longer into the fall than last year.
We've really added variety this year, with broccoli, cantaloupe, pumpkins and this beautiful cabbage.
Zucchini again (and one that sprang up in the middle of a row, leftover from last year). This bee has been going to town on this zucchini blossom for days. Is that a good sign?
The tomato plants are beautiful and healthy. We spread them out across the rows this year to try to prevent mold. I can't wait until these little beauties are ripe. I'll be making pomodori al forno like a mad woman.
Not bad for an apartment garden, huh?
