Container Garden Update — July 28, 2019

It’s been a very mild summer. The Tromboncino zucchini aren’t doing much of anything but the beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers are doing well.

Oregon Spring tomatoes are always our earliest producers. By the end of the season we should have harvested around 40 pounds total from the two plants in the box:

The first Romas:

The Taxi is “sharing” a box with a less-than-stellar Oregon Cherry. The Taxi plant starts on the left…:

The Sun Golds aren’t going quite as crazy as usual, but there are still fruits hiding among the vines:

More hiding — I’ve been sticking my head into the Fortex beans every couple of days. We’ve been harvesting around two pounds per week. I count at least eight in the picture below:

Still more hiding — I didn’t see the cucumber on the left until I went to take a picture of the cucumber on the right:

The Carmen peppers. :

And finally, the basil. Something has been chewing on the basil a little bit. I’m hoping that if the weather warms up the basil will fight off the bugs:
