End of August
As you can see, I’ve been purging. In my middle box, everything got torn up except for 2 squares of onions. I replanted green beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, and peas.
My pumpkins are the only things left in the right box–and they are taking over! I planted 2 squares on the far right, but the plant closest to the grass grew faster than the one by the back fence. So my intentions to trellis them on the chain link fence have been halfway thwarted. Truth is, those darn squash just take up a ton of room! I have a friend who trellised hers on an actual trellis, weaving it up and down. I want to see it for myself, but then I may try it!
Here’s another angle of my left box–growing tomatoes and cucumbers on the trellis. When the tomatoes reach past the top, I pinch off their growing tips.
Here are my bush tomatoes. I have 3 layers of netting that they are growing through. So far it seems to support them really well. If anything, I might put the bottom layer a little lower (some of my tomatoes are on the ground, and maybe this would fix that), and add a little more space between layers.
Finally, my peppers. The plants are not so big, but each one has produced 3-4 already, and they’re growing another batch as we speak!
