Garden update

I got two zucchini, and pulled up the plants and put down black plastic to kill the weeds.  Not only were the plants not happy, but then borers found them.  It wasn’t worth it.

 

Snow Leopard Melon

 

My surviving sunflowers

 

Onions and parsnip

 

Baby Lima beans (I forget the variety name at the moment

 

Blue Berries

 

Berry vines.  I’d actually given up on these, they’d basically not produced at all (which massively pissed me off since I’d spent a fair bit of time and money finding varieties and buying them), and I’d planned on pulling them up this spring and Roundup-ing the roots.  But then I broke my arm, and now they’re producing!  I’m probably still going to kill them, if I leave them they’ll take over the wildflower bed next to them, which would be fine if they were reliable producers, but they aren’t.

    Wow look at that tomato! The melon looks great! I wish I had some more fruit in the garden…maybe I’ll think about that for next season, though my strawberries and ground cherries have utterly failed…maybe it’s not warm enough here for that.
