We are busily preparing for the first day of school, so I thought I'd take a moment and show y'all what's going on in our garden. Overall things are looking beautiful, though we have some issues as well. On to the pictures :)
My Anaheim peppers are gorgeous! I wish I had room for more of these. I love these for a little "kick" in my crockpot "refried" beans.
The tomatoes of course, are coming along. Nothing quite like running outside when you need a tomato for your sandwich or salad. Soon... sauce....
We still have kale. This bed is pretty shady, so it continues to be happy in this spot. I had expected it to get bitter by now (and I could replace it) but as long as it's producing lovely tasty leaves, I'll keep it!
My lemon cucumbers are starting to ripen. I love these, so cute and tasty!
The acorn squash isn't done yet! It had stopped producing new female flowers, but it's going again. Some are too high on the trellis to reach.. but others I've been able to pollinate. The big problem is a few spots of powdery mildew. I'll be cutting out some leaves today... we gotta fight this early to beat it.
Finally, my (mostly) herb bed is doing well. I am continuing to pinch back the basil and dry it or use fresh if possible, as well as dry the parsley.
How would you combat powdery mildew? Wish me luck, I don't want to lose these lovely plants!
