It's been a while since I've updated on our deck garden and it has really taken off in the past month! Late June into July presented us with plentiful sunshine followed by a week of heavy rain more recently. Much of the New River Valley where we live was flooded in that week, and some of the plants took a beating because of getting too much water without the ability to dry out.
Here's the majority of the garden just after an evening rain storm.
|The last of the broccoli|
|Broccoli and Eggplant Stir Fry|
We harvested these about 2 weeks ago and have plenty more on the way:
|Squash, Antonio Romero Peppers and Jalapenos|
In the past 2 weeks our peppers and eggplants have really taken off. I'm especially excited about our baby eggplants, the "fairy tale" variety, which will only grow to be about 5-6 inches long. This entire plant is just beautiful!
|"Mr. Stripey" Heirloom Tomatoes|
Jalapeños, red pepper, a tomato and a few "purple beauty" peppers.
Lastly, I have to sneak in a picture of the pup. Here Kenya is supervising the plants while keeping cool from the summer sun.
|Wearing a VT bandana of course!|
Now that are broccoli is finished, we have an open container to re-plant in. Anyone have any suggestions??
