More First Fruits
The garden is steadily growing. The recent cool, wet weather has kept me extra vigilant for signs of disease, but so far nothing has appeared. Let's hope it stays that way!
One of the Hakucho Hybrid melon plants has reached the reed fence.
Flexum Hybrid peppers.
More Black cherry tomatoes.
I've noticed some aphids here and there, but the population remains low.
The first Giant Aconcagua pepper.
Summertime Green tomato plants hiding behind the shade cloth. The window screen fabric I've been using as shade cloth has been up for a few weeks and so far, it has been holding up very well against the elements. It's been through some very gusty days and a few major storms and I have yet to see any rips anywhere any on the fabric. I bought more for future use. $14.68 for a 25' roll, much cheaper, and easier to find locally, than actual shade cloth.
The Mountain Magic tomato plant has now reached the 3rd rung of its cage.
The first Mountain Magic tomato.
3'x25' roll of window screen fabric for shade cloth: $14.68
2012 Running Total: $181.08
