September Garden Journal update
Our drought is over and now we are getting LOTS of rain.
The harvest continues...

I planted 2 Rose of Sharon shrubs. They are doing fine and even blooming a bit.
The south one has more of a blue color to some of the flowers...
My planted-this-year holly has little white blooms. I ASSume there will be red berries next...
The zinnias have come back strong with the rain and are providing plenty of cut flowers.
The transplanted hosta is doing nice with flowers...
I orderd 48 creeping phlox from directgardening.com
They are teeny and probably 50+% have survived.
I planted them in the raised bed I grew cabbage in.
Does that count as succession planting? haha
I had planned on doing that with veggies, but the weather has been too crazy so I decided to devote my time to other things that need done getting ready for winter...
Looking forward to next year
I started a new raised bed for asparagus this year. They have great fern-like growth, so I'll ASSume we should start getting a bit of a harvest next year. Woohoo!
- The big green plants are Italian peppers. They are loaded. Should have enough to freeze some! woohoo!
A few more zucchini. I like this variety, it doesn't overwhelm you with way too many, like some.
Harvested a couple more yellow crooknecks, too.
Looks like we'll have several butternut squash to put in the root cellar.
I've never grown these before. Who has some tips on when to pick them?
Here's what my 3 sisters planting ended up looking like...
Maybe I'll have one watermelon after all. The others didn't survive the drought...
Better late than never.
The cucumbers are finally starting to make...
One day's harvest.
We should be able to make some pickles this weekend...
My favorite garden veggie.
First we had a drought. Now it's raining too much. haha
My poor tomatoes haven't quite adapted yet to the drastic change.
I had to toss nearly all of the big ones, due to excessive cracking.
Probably half the SunGold cherry tomatoes.
|My dog Trixie making sure I didn't drop any edible SunGolds. haha|
New planting in a new raised bed.
These are doing GREAT!!!
We will be eating some strawberries next year! woohoo!!!
The ones I planted in a bag did not survive.
Waiting to be planted
