Garden Update August 14 2012

The garden has done remarkably well...especially considering the extreme dry spell we had through June and July along with the high temps. Our grape tomato plants are HUGE...the one is almost six feet tall and four feet across. All of the peppers have done well too although I think they may have cross-pollinated a bit because very few of them are spicy despite the fact that they are supposed to be Jalapenos. I also failed to execute on the leaf lettuce. It's grown really tall twice now (I cut it down the first time) and I haven't harvested any of it.

That being said, we're going to change a few things for next year...More tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, no lettuce etc. We're going to go bigger and better and maybe we'll get some canning going next year. Stay tuned for more from The Rock Hill Mission!
