July Garden Tour

We’ve been having nearly 100 degree heat the past week or so and the garden is love love loving it. Here’s a little tour! It’s amazing how much has changed since my June 1 garden tour.

Tomatoes loving the heat.

Broccoli. Wishing I got it in earlier because this heat’s not doing it any favours.

The first few roma VF tomatoes.

Pepper experiment is looking awesome! They are also loving the heat. So far I’d say no differences between the pepper sizes, however they are about to that size where the competition within a pot of multiple peppers might be starting to matter. Soon we’ll have peppers coming out our ears!

More tomatoes. I am really making an effort to prune this year and keep them better guided into their cages than in previous years. I think it’s going well.

The whole yard. I think I do pretty well with the little space I have 🙂

The chaos of a calendula, tomatoes that grew from seed on their own, and some dill that also grew on it’s own.

Carrots and cucs.

The cucumbers are also loving this heat. I planted the exact same cucumbers as the last two years, like from the same exact seed packet, and the leaves of these plants are HUGE compared to last year. It’s going to be a gooooood cuc year.

Peas are dying, so I’m going to pull them shortly and plant some more beans. I’m definitely doing a better jobs at succession planting this year too.

  1. Nice! Your garden looks great! I’ve never seen purple pole beans before, how cool. My peas look like yours right now- I should pull mine but I’m not sure what to plant in its place. I think the heat is helping my garden too this year. Everything seems to be growing at a faster rate. 🙂
