You know, when I went to find a picture to upload, I think I have done far better than I thought (!) but just haven’t done the best I could.
I planted too close together, I suspect, and planted certain seesds in areas where they don’t get optimum sun.
It is so tempting, when things come up so green from seed, to hesitate to thin them out properly!
I look at my pictures from even 3 weeks ago, and my plants are three times their size – but, no fruit. Sometimes I think the honeybees just can’t even see my squash blooms, they are so hidden underneath the massive greens.
That said, I do have three zucchini squash forming in different stages; I have at least 21 green tomatoes in different stages; I have already started picking wax and green beans (every three days I get enough for a serving so far). My giant pumpkins have started to blossom, and every day when there is big new blossom, I see honeybees just hanging out inside the blossom.
I planted peppers way too close to tomatoes and I have only a few of those, and they’re small so far.
I was told not to try Iceberg lettuce, but so far a huge bed of that is providing me with lots of fresh tender greens, a huge salad every 3-4 days, I just tear leaves out and leave roots.
Corn is growing tall but is only green – no rot, no pests, just lots of tall technicolor green.
Like I said, I think I have planted too close together and it’s affecting produce. Then again, my earliest planting date was May 21, from seeds started inside. I planted many things from seed all the way up until the end of June, and a month later, those plants are producing baby veggies.
So I guess I need to wait another month to see what goes on!
