It was a hot weekend but as you can see my vegetables are doing just great. Of course, I water them daily just enough to keep them upright and it seems to be paying off. My cucumbers are doing great and they have a bunch of little cukes growing on them. As you can see below they are climbing the wire fencing I put up for them and seem to be enjoying the extra height to tower over my okra and peppers.
So it looks like I have my first tomato of the season. Blooms are starting to appear on my tomato plants and after some debate I decided to put out some additional plants in the open space between my peppers and cukes. I picked up some nice okra plants and an eggplant for the wife. She loves eggplants but I just haven’t found a taste for them yet. If we get a couple this season maybe I will give it another try.
I also picked up a couple watermelon plants that I’ll post pictures of a little later.
