Garden downtime

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve updated my garden. Quite honestly it’s because it’s been around 100° for the past several weeks and everything has just sort of gone into stationary mode.

The cherry and plum tomato bushes have been producing decently well even with the heat and my lack of constant watering. However the larger variety tomato bush that I had has completely failed. By that I mean while the bush would flower almost continuously the entire time it has produced four tomatoes. It was removed today officially.

Right now I’m waiting for ‘fall’ transplants, and cooler weather.

In the meantime this is what happens when you assume that your cucumber plant is not producing fruit

  1. Nice! That’s a pretty big one. My cucumber plant is finally flowering and has several tiny little cucumbers. Hopefully they’ll start getting larger like yours.
