After spending several hours yesterday, amending the soil, turning it, and shopping at the Natural Gardener, my Fall Garden is underway.
I planted Valley Girl Tomatoes, a variety called Big Red, which I’ve never heard of, and a couple called Solar Set. I gave the still producing Celebrity a haircut, and a shot of Rabbit Hill Farms Buds and Blooms. I also planted 4 Butternut Squash Plants, as well as some more Jalapenos and a Mucho Nacho Pepper.
I attempted to pull up the Chocolate Cherry Tomatoes in the 4×8 bed, but found that the Lemon Cucumbers had claimed the entire plant as a trellis. What a huge mess, but the lemon cucumbers are coming on strong, so I hate to disturb them. I decided to let them make cukes for another couple of weeks, then pull out the whole mess and plant the potatoes there.
The Three Sisters Garden looks good, I think. The corn looks great, but the beans and pumpkins don’t seem as happy.
And, the 1 watermelon is growing slowly.
