I have been so busy in the garden, and it seems like I can barely keep up with everything. The Oregon Sugar Pod II snow peas in particular are a real time spender. I have to pick them every night or else they get way too big. I have been harvesting squash and lots of zucchini too. The lettuce is fully formed and I have about 8 heads that are ready to be harvested. So that means only a few more weeks of fresh garden lettuce. The corn looks great and it is loaded with ears. I hit it with a little 13-13-13 and extra water today. I bought some liquid Sevin insecticide and sprayed my squash and zucchini plants.
As for new plantings, I have planted a full 4X8 bed of pink eye purple hull field peas. I also planted a 4X4 bed of Jalapeno peppers, and a 4X4 bed of eggplant. I planted 4 squares of Silver Queen corn, but I think my zucchini may be taking too much from that bed to also grow corn out of it. I finished off what was left of the maple tree up on the hill and I think I will plant some more stuff up there.
As for the weather, it is just crazy hot and no rain. I know I live in Georgia, but this has been August weather that we have had in May. I hope it is not a sign of a super hot summer. I thought last summer was the hottest I can remember.
Peaches and Cream Corn is really growing now that the maple tree is gone.
Lettuce is only gonna last a few more days in this heat
Pink Eye Purple Hull Peas are one of my favorites
Oregon Sugar Pod II Peas, they have struggled too in this heat.
