Container Garden Update — June 14, 2015

Previous post here.  June 21, 2014 post here.  June 16, 2013 post here.

Reviewing the pictures, this post is very similar to the June 21 post of last year. I even took pictures of most of the same things (Oregon Spring tomatoes, King of the North Peppers, the first Tromboncino zucchini.)

But I’m just now figuring that out, so here goes, starting with the overview:

Overall, I’d say we’re basically one week’s growth ahead of last year.

The basil — The mass is loosely the same as 2014, it’s just sprawled out:

The Tromboncino zucchini. They’re a little less than six feet tall:

The biggest zucchini. It’s around 4-5 inches long:

The tomatoes are trying to escape their cages. This one had to be coaxed back in:

The Oregon Spring:

It feels like we’re not seeing as many bees this year. Hopefully they’ll find the tomatillos attractive over the next few days:

The biggest King of the North. I may hit them with diatomaceous earth sooner than later. In theory it should keep the earwigs from eating holes in the peppers:

Because I haven’t done a picture of these in a while, the Marketmore 76 cucumbers:

  1. i have three small fruit on my Indigo Rose tomato, but nothing elsewhere. But I think I am also ahead of last year, which was a start-from-seed year experiment for me. Good thing, too.
