<--24 hours ago the eggplants looked like this. I watered them and they perked right up but I just went out and they look like this again
my corn is short but after I watered it last night it perked right up and looks fairly good. It has these tassels or something growing.... not sure what that means.
this is a tiny watermelon that somehow is growing in a bucket of squash
Travis' row of canteloupe have lots of blooms....but again, it is almost August, I have no idea if canteloupes have enough time to grow before the first freeze. Why, yes, it is almost a 100 degrees today and I am worrying about the first freeze??? Why do yo ask? The thing is, the 10 day forecast has us only with a 10% chance of rain on a couple of days. I can not even remember when it last rained. Is it worth it to keep watering with city water at about $75 a month? Actually only about $35 of water is going on the yard and garden but I'm not getting a $1 worth of veggies a day. Very discouraging. I was hoping I would be eating alot of veggies out of this garden. I pictured a plate of homegrown black eyed peas, sliced tomatoes, slices of canteloupe, corn on the cob, fried zuchinni. I should have saved my money instead of putting it in this garden. Sigh. I could just cry. After years of living in an apartment when I bought this house I was so in hopes that I could grow a lot my own food.
