A Little Catching Up.......

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.

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.

  2. Thanks for the catch up... it was good to see your garden and your harvest. It was a tough year for the veggies in Florida. We got all that early rain and then very little. Once the soil temps get high it is downhill from there anyway.

    Pretty squash photos.

  4. That's a huge bug. I ran into a brown catepillar today on the tomato. Was sure it was a brown stick. Then it moved. But wasn't sure. Eventually it moved and knew it was not a stick. Very clever disguise. Not nearly as huge as yours though...

  6. Long time no see Dennis....Compared to how our veggie garden did this year, yours looks great! I squash bugs too! I do not photoshop or do anything to my photos other than removing red eye, every now and then I might zoom in, that's rare for me though. I like to know that I actually took the photo the way they turned out..

  8. I squashed a tomato worm like that yesterday. Took me a while to find him. He had already stipped one plant of all the leaves.
