What grows in our vegetable patch?
Mini Bell peppers
The strawberries are doing well, but our urban vegetable patch is small, so 2 - 3 strawberries each day is a good result.
The blackberrie bush is in bloom, to pick blackberries we must wait until September. We do pick handsfull of raspberries though.
We daily pick three, four mini-cucumbers. They grow fast and are un-sprayed, they taste deliciously fresh. The cucumbers are nice and firm when you take a bite. These are the rock stars of today in our kitchen garden, the raspberry and the cucumber. Both bush and plants give a lot of fruit and veg and they only need some water.
The Blueberry Shrub
A close-up of the grapes, they are doing great!
Just relocated the tomatoes get lots of sun and 40°C!
At this moment the weather is nice for the garden, lots of sunshine with an occasional downpour and no extreme heat anymore. We are happy with those showers, because too much heat is not good for the garden or for us.
With long-lasting heat and drought the ground water gets low and then your garden needs extra water. However, pouring water on your garden in times of drought is discouraged, even forbidden sometimes and that also can be problematic for your garden. That's why it is so important to always mind the environment because normal Summer weather without extremes is best for your garden, the animals and us all!
