Some you Win, Others Not so Much...

The urban veggie jungle

Yes, it's another garden post.  Been a while since I updated on the status of the veggie patch, and as you can see things have moved along.  The corn is now nearly as tall as me (admittedly not that difficult since I'm only 5'8"), the cucumber plants are just as tall and producing well, and the tomatoes, sunflower, broccoli, basil and parsley are doing nicely.

On the other hand, my star producers - the summer squash and zucchini - appear to have died. I'm not sure what happened to them, but when I got back from Baton Rouge they had shuffled off this mortal coil.

Oh well, at least we got to enjoy them while they lasted (along with most of the birds in the neighborhood).

A plethora of tomatoes, peppers, corn and cucumber

The wandering pumpkins, with the broccoli and the huge sunflower behind

Oh dear.  No more summer squash or zucchini for me!!!

You did well! Our first season wasn't as "fruitful" as I would have liked, but we learned some lessons.

Any idea what type of tomatoes we should plant for the fall season? A master-gardener here says we should be planting them outdoors by mid-July in order to enjoy as much produce as possible before the first freeze in Nov.

Looking forward to cooler weather already...
