Ours is doing good. We are getting tomatoes and cucumbers and peppers. Since we have a longer growing season and no real cold snaps I am going to start some beans and zucchini today. We will see how they do. What are you growing? How is your garden doing?

The rains have just started.As of now I have put a covering for my vegetable patch so that it gets protected from the direct rain.Just sowed some beans and peas.My corn has come out well, a bumper crop.My ornamental garden is getting affected by the rain.I removed the gerbras,petunias and a few others put them in pots and I have kept them in the glass house.After the rains I will put them back in the garden.There is water logging on my lawn its overgrown and cannot be cut now.Luckily i put out some hardly plants which do not get affected by the rain so my garden still has a lot of color.

It is going OK. It's never as good as I hope. My tomatoes are finally getting red and there is alot of them. The peppers I think are being dwarfed by the tomatoes so they are not producing. The basil is growing great, the onions appear to be healthy, and I'm not sure about the horseradish. I plan to plant a fall crop in a few weeks of broccoli and leaf lettuce.

I really miss not having a large outdoor garden. I've had farms most of my adult life, now I'm in a condo so all I have are a couple of aerogrows for fresh herbs and small vegetables..

I restarted my aerogrow with herbs two weeks ago and they are doing so good. Will have to take a pic of the two week growth.

Ours is doing good too. Tomatoes are just about ready to be picked. We've already gotten a few cherry tomatoes, but no big tomatoes yet. We've already gotten quite a bit of yellow squash and zucchini. We've already picked quite a few cucumbers too. There's a fair sized honey dew melon that's not too far away from being ready to be picked. The cantalope are about the size of an orange. So far so good!

Sounds good. I don't have the room for melons right now. I might clear a spot in the backyard next year to do some melons.

We only have tomatoes and bell peppers, we only have a small place to grow a garden, the tomatoes are doing great, someone told us we should get some powered milk and mix and pour on them, well that sounded stupid but I had about a half a gallon of 2% milk that was going to be bad in a couple days so I added some water to it and we pour it on the plants, they are so big and loaded with tomatoes, I also found a packet of colored bell peppers and i planted them in a large flower pot they have grown to about 12 inches tall, they have blue, orange, purple, yellow and green and red bell peppers, they should be colorful if nothing else. I wish I had a place to grow all sorts of things, try the milk next year, I dont' know if that is what made them so big, but something did.
