Garden Update August 20, 2017

It’s been a busy two weeks for us over here.  We’ve been out and about enjoying the gorgeous weather and play dates with some friends.  Not a lot of gardening has been happening aside from watering everything and picking the zucchini and ripe tomatoes but the garden has been flourishing for the most part.  This weekend I did get some things done – securing tomatoes, fertilizing them, picking all the lettuce after discovering slugs.

The tomatoes are starting to ripen more and more, we haven’t had more than we can eat yet but they are going to catch up to us soon.  The peppers are starting to really go crazy, the paprikas, sweet peppers and jalapeños especially but the hot peppers are really flowering and looking well.  We’ve been picking and eating carrots daily for snacks and enjoying them immensely.  Zucchini is still going strong and doesn’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.  The pumpkins, squash, and watermelon vines are growing fast but so far no real fruit has shown up.

Since it’s been two weeks since my last update I have pictures from both weeks.  First up, the week of August 12:

And this week:

That’s it for today friends.  Maybe someday I’ll be able to post more frequently and about more than just my garden, but for now I’m embracing where I am in life and accepting it’s limitations.

Ciao!
