I thought I would do a quick veggie garden update. One reason it's quick is because there aren't a whole lot of veggies growing. Tomatoes and potatoes seem to be the easiest for me, and since I moved the blueberry bushes to this area there just isn't as much space for vegetables. There is quite a bit of fruit growing here. The 'Desert King' Fig tree is covered in figs, the strawberries are on a break right now, and of course lots of blueberries.
Here are some of the veggies:
'Anna Russian' tomatoes given to me by Molly at the only SAGBUTT (Seattle Garden Bloggers United to Talk) meeting that I made it to so far.
The one and only Jalepeno. I had one year where we got tons of peppers, never since have we had that many. I'll let my husband enjoy it, since it was something he asked me to grow.
'Brandywine' Tomatoes I started from seed are getting huge. I gave my Mom and sister each a plant and they said they're practically taking over the garden.
Red Onions are blooming, the honey bees have been all over these.
Bush Zucchinis have the starts of some small zucchinis. I'm afraid the aphids are going to take over, I'll need to try some soap spray.
The first of the red potatoes with some of our rosemary made delicious oven roasted potatoes. We always add lots of garlic too!
Our one and only head of broccoli so far. Some years we have great luck, but I think it's just been too hot for it this year.
Tomatoes in our garden aren't usually ready until further into August, although with the heat we've had maybe some will be ready earlier. Besides the two I showed I have Grape tomatoes and Great Wall of China. I don't think we can ever have too many tomatoes. I've also got one pumpkin vine that so far has no sign of a pumpkin, it's produced flowers but that's it so far. I guess we'll be buying those this fall.
