It's thát time of the month again... Show us what you're growing and maybe you'll win one of the prizes
In the US, June is national 'Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month', and today - June 17th - is National 'Eat Your Vegetables'-Day. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to launch the June edition of the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge.
In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is coming closer, which means the garden is growing at warp speed and there's never enough time to keep up with everything.
I still owe you the follow-up of my 'Grumpy Faces In My Garden'-post, but now the weather has turned - it's extremely hot and dry again - I'm in the middle of a war. The mystery pest has found a way to start spreading again and it seems like the cucumber and melon plants aren't going to make it. On top of that, there's an army of aphids attacking my plants.
Obviously, I did something wrong when fertilizing my soil - pests and plagues are usually an indicator that shows you that your soil if over- or underfertilized - and I need to find a way to fix it.
The tomato plants, however, are doing great! If I can keep them safe, an abundance of tomatoes is awaiting us. But I'm not getting my hopes up yet. Let's see what tomorrow brings.
Meanwhile, I'm curious to find out about your greens. Are they doing well? Or maybe not? How come, then?
You guessed it... it is that time of the month again: time to share your garden updates.
Welcome to the June edition of the SteemIt Community Garden Journal Challenge, which encourages you to share your monthly (indoor) garden/balcony/homestead/... updates with your fellow Steemians and create your own garden journal.
