Decided to get a few pics of the garden before another round of showers set in. The plot was planted around June 14, late because of a cold, wet spring.
A few tomatoes, red Brandywine and orange KY beefsteak, three of each
Bean vine climbing up corn stalk. It wasn’t my idea, my wife said this is how her family had done it for years.
Cuke vine climbing up tomato cage, most of the vines are on the ground, though. Nothing yet to pick, but plenty of blooms on the plants
A few purple okra plants, first year growing them, doing very well. Seeds from a friend of my Mom’s in OK.
Overall view of patch, about 40 x 65 feet. We haven’t fenced it in yet to keep deer out, but have just had a few cuke and bean plants browsed on. I’m holding off on a fence to see how long I can get away with it.
5 rows of corn, with beans. Three varieties of corn and beans each. Corn is Honey Select, Ambrosia and Kandy Korn. Beans are white and striped half-runners and Rattlesnake pole beans.
