Garden update 7/17/2013

There's not too much left in the garden.  The peas have all been harvested and pulled out.  The green beans have been harvested.  The corn has been harvested.  The potatoes have been harvested.  This is what's left.
 One bed of onions and weeds.
 The pepper plants are doing great!  We have more jalapenos than we know what to do with.  I took a whole bag of peppers to work one day and a whole bag to church one Sunday.  They are all full of peppers again.  We have canned banana peppers, made salsa, and frozen tons of jalapenos.
 The tomatoes have grown out the top of the trellis and are flowering still.  I ended up dousing them with seven to kill the stink bugs.  The nicotine poison was useless.
 The cucumber plants are still going strong.  I only planted a few this year to eat fresh.  We still have tons of pickles from last year.

Like the watermelon the butternut squash have started to split open from all the rain we have been receiving lately. 
One bed full of carrots and weeds.

Not pictured is one bed of sweet potatoes that is still going strong.
