Life with Vegetables: The mid-July garden

Print Friendly

I’m taking today off as a vacation day, so among the other odds and ends I’m doing I decided to capture a photo update of the state of the vegetable garden, new this year. I previously discussed the garden in May and June, with photos as well.

I’m growing two tomatoes in Topsy Turvy planters on the porch off our kitchen. They’re doing quite well size-wise compared to when I planted them, though they have flowers but no fruit. That’s not too surprising, since the outside tomatoes also do not have fruit.

Zooming out a whole bit and going upstairs, here’s the full garden:

  1. That’s a pretty serious garden. Enjoy!

  2. Never sure about those topsy turvy tomato planters, especially when you have room to do it the normal way.
