We’ve had an unfortunate encounter with some bugs in the past couple days. We lost a couple melon plants, but I think we’ve saved at least one. I sat by the door all day yesterday waiting for the earth to arrive.
I’m still in awe that we grew this cucumber wall from seeds. They definitely don’t like the hot hot sun, but they get quite a bit of shade from trees. And you can see the cucumbers on that back fence trying to make a run for it.
We have two okra plants, and they have already grown a couple feet at least. They make okra like machines, but we still are figuring out how to eat them…
We had a problem with pepper plants earlier in the season, so I am relieved that these ones seem to be doing much better. We have had dozens of jalepeno peppers, and are starting to get some green peppers too. And the random rocks are for holding the soaker hose in place, we aren’t just lazy leaving rocks everywhere.
