Livie harvested one of her canteloupes. Small but tasty little treat 😁!

A bit smaller than a pool ball. The deer or a squirrel ate the larger melon.

Green beans, jalapenos, and bell peppers now. 

Not as many big ripe tomatoes lately, but there's hundreds of little green ones again. 

Still plenty of  ripe cocktail maters.

Should have some habaneros by end of month... maybe .

Planted more corn too.

Seems for me a rather slow year for tomatoes. I just get enough for BLT's and slicing but no salsa.

For me it's been  a battle from the beginning with these tomatoes.  First it was flooding, then disease and extreme heat, that and the bugs and caterpillars, I'm losing fruit to that all the time. Also it's defoliation time again for these plants. Must have good air flow . A modified version  of hard pruning is another  thing I do to my plants. 

I apply what I can naturally to help prevent things but it's not always effective... 

Baking soda foliar spray I hear helps prevent blight 

 

Just an update we lost 4 of the 5 zucchini plants to a  root bug of some kind.  They were in containers filled with cheap sta green potting mix, will  never use that again. Read the reviews on it after the fact,  not good imo

Cantaloupe are done, pretty much just up and  croaked on me. Same potting mix as the zucchini 😕

Green bell peppers are now struggling to produce anything of any  size.  the red ones are doing  fine . Both in the ground.

All my garden went out way late, but came on strong.  Am begging neighbors to take a few zucchini, tomatoes are coming on strong, lots of little ones, and the brandywines are producing well also.  Wife finally broke down and canned a few quarts with a sprig of basil for use this winter in spaghetti most likely.  Cukes aren't going wild but are steadily producing, and the Tams Jalapeños are setting tons of peppers.  Canteloupes have several nice ones set on, they are an older variety called ambrosia I believe and are always wonderful flavored.  I need to water it all well and spend most of a day pulling weeds and grass, but also need to mow the yard and continue brush hogging the pasture.  Oddly the one thing that has done the worst is my wildflower patch at the end of the garden, if it doesn't get better soon it's going to become my turnip patch.
