In other garden news-the tomatoes and peppers are coming along nicely and I think I will have enough for most of the neighbors.
Something is continuing to decimate my eggplants, not really anything else just my 4 eggplants-see?
The green beans have started training up the lines from last year and I only have to help them out a little bit. I did thin them again this weekend, it gets harder and harder to pull up plants the bigger they get!
The pink eyed peas are doing ok, some of the leaves are a little "shriveled" up, they seem to be growing this way. This is my first year for these so I am not sure if this is normal or not.
And finally, the squash plants are growing nicely and it is almost time to start "attaching them" to the cages. I think I will use some fabric strips instead of string. I have a sack of (way too small) clothes going to the thrift store and I may just cut some of them up for tying purposes.
I was out of town for a week and very nervous about the garden-so I'm happy to update that everything (well except the spiders) is going good!
