Pole Beans, Tomatoes, and Squash are Easy Vegetables to Grow
It seems that every time I walk into the garden (which is every day), the plants have grown and there is new fruit to pick. Yesterday I was pruning and treating for an aphid invasion. I gather two gorgeous yellow squash. I’ll eat those tonight with the giant zucchini I picked late last week. I’ve already harvested 5 lbs of cucumbers and I’m starting to think that maybe I planted too many of those.
Tomatoes are easy vegetables to grow in the garden. My tomatoes are coming along very nicely. Have the precise nutrients they love and a consistent water source certainly helps.
There are several blossoms on the cherry tomato plants and a few fruit developing.The big beef tomatoes are further along, with several fruit and tons of blossoms. I fertilize the garden once per week with weekly feed and the watering system provides water directly to the root zone.
I saw a nice big bee in the garden yesterday doing its job pollinating zucchini and squash flowers. The powder you see on the leaves of all these plants is diatomaceous earth. That’s is what I treated them with for the aphids.
The pole beans have grown all the way to the top of the T-posts and are starting to grow along the top. There are several pods developing along the vines too. I’m certain this will be a bumper crop.
Take a look at these eggplants. Yum. two weeks ago they had aphids attacking them. I treated them with a dusting of Diatomaceous Earth and the aphids disappeared over night.
I can hardly wait to make some Eggplant Parmesan. Here’s the recipe I’ll follow as soon as these fruits are ripe.
