4/26 - Garden

I think the garden has really taken off this week. We had three days with temperature over 90. I replanted seeds in the middle where the sprinkler is at. From the sprinkler to the end I put black eyed peas. From the sprinkler back to me I planted Alaskan Peas and Green beans.
Here is the watermelon he seems to be going great.

Mr. Cantaloupe finally shows himself.

I know you can't see it, but the jalapeno plants are budding and I think the past couple of days they have really grown.

Here are the tomatoes. This one is up to my knee and they are budding. I think the cherry tomatoes might survive.

4/19 - upside down tomato

Here is the upside down tomato. I am surprised it hasn't died yet. I don't see the same growth as I do planting them in the ground. It could be because they don't get as much sunlight, but i don't think so.
It is still very stiff and fighting to turn itself upright.

4/19 - garden update

I thinned out the corn and they seem to be doing the best. We have two rows.

Here is the jalapeno plants. I think they are going to be great except for one. One is wilted pretty bad, but we will see.

Here is the tomato plants. I took a picture of the best one. My garden area is on a small slope. So all the water pools down at this one. I thought it would be to much water, but it is doing great.

Here is the watermelons. They finally poked their heads out of the ground and they are doing great.

Here are the carrots. I am going to plant them in the ground soon. I am excited about these.

Here is a look at my jalapeno plants. We finally got some rain last night. We have been in a severe drought. I think they are OK, just not a lot of growth.

Here are some flowers I planted by the house and to be honest with you I have no idea what they are, I cant remember what I planted. The white stick to the left is suppose to be an elephant ear. I cant wait until it grows.

Corn; the corn is growing great. I need to go through and thin it out so they get maximum growth, Jack Frost didnt hurt them.

I am excited about these, My carrots. They are growing great. My only problem is they are growing in a pot.

Finally my blueberries, NO this is not an old picture. It is still alive, but I dont see a lot of growth. Man it looks like I need to weed my beds.

Cold Weather in April....

My goal is to take pictures every Sunday. I want to do this so I get excited about the growth. These pictures were taken a week ago. This April has seen some record lows, and right now it is 52 degrees. I love the cold weather, but the cold weather is not so good with gardens as we can see with the Tomato plant. Stay tuned because I am going out to take some pictures right now.
