Backyard Botanical Garden Series: Part 3

It's been almost two months since I started this project and I couldn't be happier.  I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves on this one...

Squash & Zucchini
I added a stand to help the cucumber vines stay off of the ground
Chili Peppers & Onion Patch

Cherry Tomatoes

I am pleasantly surprised that my Bell Pepper finally started growing.  It was touch and go for a few weeks because of the aphids that were attacking the leaves.  An order of 1500 lady bugs seemed to do the trick. 

Bell Pepper


 As you can see, everything is thriving.  I have had one celery plant die (my fault) and a couple of corn plants met their demise due to animals.  Other than that, things are going well.  I have propagated a couple of plants, had my husband build 6 additional raised beds to house my tea garden, new berry patch, 3 rows of corn, my seedlings and an overall thinning out of some of the plants.  I plan on doing a post on growing plants from cuttings and seeds soon.

What are you growing this season?
