No, not all of the plants in my garden will make an appearance but the ones doing their best to shine will.
I am also still working on the second (fence) planter. After the recent floods I had to do a little redesigning. I did come up with a reasonably good way to divert the water under the fence, but now I have to decide if one large planter would create too much of a barrier and overpower my mini culvert or if I will indeed have to break it into 2 separate boxes. The waterline on the inside of the fence was 6-8 inches high so I must do something no doubt. I was only planning on the box being 4-5' tall after all.
Rambling aside the good stuff. Pictures!
The sweet peas are still hanging in there... literally. Barely, but they are. About 2/3 of the plants have either failed to flower or have flopped entirely do to the heat. The other third are still doing OK, and even at OK I'm not willing to cull just yet. Fresh garden peas are a treat most Floridians don't get to enjoy. Besides I don't have any thing ready to take their place just yet. But not for long. Their time is very limited now.
Onions are doing fine, a tiny bulb is forming. Not that I expect large bulbs, but something is better than nothing. and their partner in crime, the Tomatillos is blooming insanely.
Zucchini #1 is covered up in growth with a few blossoms, but zucchini #2 has 6 female blossoms on it. One was taken a few days early last night, for some grillin. Yummo..... (BLECH, I don't like zucchini, but Rich and Kate enjoyed it)
Broccoli crowns are nearly ready. This pictures is already 10 days old and the crown will be eaten tonight I'm quite sure. There are 3 more like it as well. Not long now and the heat will take any more of the cold crops. Like these lettuce as well.
Pomegranate is preparing to flower. WAHOO! Finally my little bush may actually produce for me this year. I haven't shown the kids yet, but believe you me they will be SO excited! Blueberries are still finishing as well. A few more weeks and they will be done for the year. The kids are doing much better with not picking off the unripened fruit this year. They are older now and understand. That or my crying last year after finding them with the bushes plucked got through. ;-) Either way.
