Garden Update July 17th

This is a container garden update on July 17th. Our garden is on a small patio.

Container Garden – this week we finally got the tomato trellis in. We trimmed the Napoli tomatoes back and placed a trellis in. The beefsteak tomatoes will get a trellis next. We also noticed some bottom rot on Tuesday. We added more lime to both planters.

I placed support sticks in for the red bell peppers. We are down to 4 plants. The squirrels ate 2 of them. I thought I might re-plant them so they will be ready for next year. Did you know peppers grow year-round?

The pickling cucumbers are loaded with flowers. I can’t wait to see the fruits. Hopefully lots of pickles this year. The lemon cucumbers are have just started to flower.

I replanted all my pepper’s from when they died during the heatwave. I replanted Sweet Bananas, jalapeño, and Serrano. The cayenne has finally started to grow. The pepperoncini are getting flowers.

The blue lake bush green beans are getting taller and started to wrap around the trellis. We have 15 left after the squirrel ate one.

Garlic hasn’t been watered for two weeks now and the leaves are finally dying back. It will be soon to harvest the bulbs.

All of these herbs are still small but growing. The English thyme, chocolate mint, and rosemary need to be trimmed and dehydrated. The herb garden now contains German thyme, cilantro, parsley, basil, oregano, marjoram, sage, dill, and nigella.

Blueberry bushes are growing new limes. I also see some flowers. I think the heatwave canceled berries this year.

The alpine strawberries are a little disappointing this year but again these plants live for years.

That is about it for this week’s garden update on July 17th. Please come back for next week’s update. In the meantime, I am working on cooking and food storage videos.
