So my garden is in shambles. Almost everything is picked, the only things left are tomatoes, green peppers, jalapenos, my struggling eggplants and the pumpkins. But none of them are really happy. My tomatoes will have to be pulled, they have wilted and some of the branches are dry and yellow, it's not the heatwave, it's something missing in the soil because the problem showed up some time ago but I'm not sure what it is. The tomatoes in the other greenhouse are doing just fine. I wonder if tomatoes have been growing in the same beds for too many years? This is only my second year and who knows; the previous owners could have been growing tomatoes here since they bought the place..hmmm!
On a good note, the pan de zucchero I transplanted is growing well and the radicchio seeds I put down have sprouted and are showing their true leaves. The broccoli seeds have also sprouted but the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower have not made an appearance.
Pan de zucchero in the back, radichio in the front and flanked on both sides by weeds!!! It's just to hot to get out there and pull them. I tried working in the evening but the skeeters ate me alive!
And the potatoes..are they ready to pull? The leaves are turning yellow and dying off.
This year my veggie garden will be a stop in the first ever Powell River Edible Garden Tour, let's hope I have something to show and more importantly something Edible.
