Cucumbers and Tomatoes

The good news is that the Straight Eight cucumber seeds I planted over the July 4th weekend are growing nicely and will have to be trellised soon. 


I’m hoping I drilled enough holes in the self watering container that it’s no longer self watering. Apparently cakes don’t like wet feet. 

The tomato crop is coming along fairly well except for some end rot. 


Hopefully the calcium I added to all the pots last weekend will solve the problem going forward. It’s only happening with one variety so far. 

This year we tried to space out the barrels better so there is more space between them for air circulation. So of course we’re having a particularly wet season. 

The peppers are doing nicely however. 


And I’m about to harvest my first Gretel eggplant of the season today! 


Not the best picture of her. 

More later!
