Garden - June 30th

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

Summer is well on its way now, and we got another shower today. It is so nice when we get these afternoon showers and I don't have to water every day. I am working on my second plantings of the season in most cases and here is an update on where things are.

Here is a bed of Pink Eye Purple Hull Peas.  They are at 50 days and forming pods now

Here is another bed of the same peas, these are at 11 days

I have high hopes for these 4 squash plants. My first planting didn't do well, but these are doing awesome in my raised bed. Super vigorous and healthy. I already have some baby squash buds at 21 days.

My second planting of Peaches and Cream Corn, this batch is also in a raised bed. It is also doing great. I planted 72 seeds in a 4X8 bed. I hope to get the same output from this 32 sq ft bed vs my previous planting in over 100 sq ft. I think with better soil and easier care I will get more plants with two ears per stalk. The 100 sq ft section produced 85 ears out of 110 seeds planted.

Looks great! I pulled everything except my tomatoes, peppers and eggplants up last week. I will post an update soon. I FINALLY HAVE MY COMPUTER BACK :)

I am glad you got your computer fixed. I wish I could find some eggplant transplants at a garden center to plant. I look forward to your post.
