Just did a quick garden tour in my stories. All my greens and peas are done and gone but lots of baby carrots and beets still growing. My tomatoes, cucumbers and melons are out of control. One thing I learned this year (my first year of vegetable gardening) is that in order to avoid the out of control tomato jungle, the plants need to be pruned, oops 😬.
Hola everyone 👋🏼😄 How's the week treating everyone? Out here the week is going well and with the overcast this morning, it perfectly nice under this Bajá sky 😊😌😊 Here's the Nardello Pepper plant from a post I did not so long ago where I harvested all the peppers. I'm really happy how quick the second round of peppers started to grow on this plant 👏🏼😃👏🏼 Well actually I'm really happy how every pepper plant is growing!!! I keep repeating it and I do apologize but last season every single pepper plant only gave me one round of peppers. As soon as the peppers started to ripen, they would drop all their leaves and that's it...no new growth let alone any new pods and that was the same on all of my plants! This season everything looks healthy and these Nardellos (I have two growing but this one has the most flowers and peppers) are already growing their second round of peppers! This plant gave me twenty some peppers and it looks to be even more this time around. The difference from last season? The fish and kelp fertilizers and the organic slow release pellets! Feeding the soil throughout the seasons instead of just at the start and in the middle has made the difference in my opinion! Can't wait to see what it does for my fall/winter things 😊😁😊 Have a great rest of the day or night everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by Bajá 👋🏼😁💚🌶👌🏼 #ilovemygarden#ilovepeppers#nardello#nardellopeppers#jimmynardello#nardella#growfromseed#growfromseeds#grownfromseed#grownfromseeds#growyourown#growyourownfood#growyourfood#growwhatyoueat#growwhatyoulove#growsomething#growsomethinggreen#containergarden#containergardening#gardentotable#gardentherapy#happywednesday#thankyoueveryone
Check out the corona on that one! It's been all about the sun this week...... and tomatoes too. Two things I can always count on in late August are tomatoes and sunflowers. Every season has its rewards. 😎🌻🍅Happy mid-week to you!

How adorable are these little Paris Market carrots from @westcoastseeds !? 😍🥕 I won these seeds in a giveaway from @goldenacregarden in the spring and I had no idea what to expect, but I love them! They are the perfect size to roast with some beets.
My sister had a bunch of extra corn seed, so I took it home to experiment with. I planted it in the area of the yard that my boys call "The pokey grass", because it's bad grass and full of thorns. Our soil is such heavy clay, I didn't know if the seeds would even come up in the ground (my garden is raised beds), so I didn't even bother turning over the soil. But the corn has sprouted! I now see a corn maze in our fall future! ---

Really digging everything about this. The wall color, the vertical planters... so cool #Repost @greenmill_lawnandgarden (@get_repost)
Another example of efficient use of space for your plants. Put em on the wall!😛😄
Does anyone else still have peaches on their trees? This is our second year growing this Native Indian Peach variety but I honestly had no idea they take this long to ripen, these peaches are still hard as a rock! Hopefully a few more hot days will ripen them up! 😋🍑
