It was a great weekend to work in the garden. It was overcast and the temperatures were in the low 80's, a rarity for Georgia this time of year. I took full advantage of it to get some tasks done in the garden.
I pulled the last zucchini plant and prepped that bed for my third and final planting of corn. I added cow manure and mushroom compost to the soil and while mixing the soil I saw many earthworms. I guess I am doing something right because I have always heard that it is a good sign if you have earthworms in your garden soil. I planted the bed with more Peaches and Cream corn and then ran out of seeds, so I had to plant the remaining two blocks with Silver Queen.
I also bought some of that MiracleGro garden fertilizer and watered all my azaleas and vegetables with it. I don't normally use this stuff because I can never tell if it is working or how much I am applying, but we will see what it does. Other than that, just enjoyed the weekend, back to work tomorrow.

Squash Bed - I hope I can stay ahead of the squash bugs.
Peaches and Cream Corn Bed - Doing great and starting to tassel
Freshly prepared bed of corn.
Another shot of corn with purple hull peas just sprawling all over the place in front
Jalapeno pepper and Eggplant Bed
My three tomato plants are growing, they are almost as tall as the cages so I will have to figure something out.
A few lines of purple hull peas planted near same area as my tomatoes, half of one line didn't come up.
