As I mentioned in my last post, we got bunches of rain this year in Florida. About 15" in one week alone. The rain wrecked havoc on my garden, but I was still able to harvest a bunch of veggies. Here's some pictures I took over the last 2 months while I was in and out from going to Honduras & Nicaragua:
A wet, wide look at the garden.....probably about a month & a half ago.
The tomatoes did well......but I bet I lost 40% due to the rain.
My first time growing corn...........and my first time dealing with Japanese Beetles! They feasted on my corn. I was only able to save a few ears.
Cukes. We have delicious pickles in the fridge right now.
Carrots.......... Crooked Neck, Magda & Sweet Lightning (bottom) Squash.
Squash, Eggplant, Sweet Potato, Garlic & Beans. The Garlic didn't do to well, so this year I bought some from a place in Texas that sells Garlic that grows in warmer areas.
And I'll end with a message for all bugs.................
Current garden pics coming next.
