Early June Veggie Garden Tour

My vegetable garden is green and growing in June:



The beans are trying to touch the sun:


The peanuts have germinated and are settling in for a long growing season:


The corn with their stylish cutworm collars are hanging out with sweet potatoes this year:


The regular potatoes on the other hand are dwindling away from a fungal wilt:


The tomato bed is quickly filling in and growing up:


The cucumbers have begun their mission to take over the world:


The melons are being indecisive about growing up or out and decided to do both:


A row of carrots that were a bit stubborn about germinating this spring:

A flourishing bed of kidney beans:

The bolting bed: lettuces, celery, and cilantro declaring that it is just too hot:

Then there are the garden details: 1. baby acorn squash, 2. banana peppers, 3. young hubbard squash, 4. immature strawberries, 5. the first little green tomato, 6. a baby bell pepper, 7. first eggplant flower, 8. Persian cucumber

  2. Everything looks really great! I can't wait to see how your peanuts do! We tried to grow them last year but they completely failed! I think it was all of the neighbors tree roots in the bed :-( I decided not to try this year, but would like to in the future :-)

    1. Peanuts are one of my favorite things to grow just because they are so unique. I'm sure they don't like competing with tree roots. They are suppose to like loose sandy soils the best, but they first time I grew them I had lots of clay and they did ok. You should definitely try again sometime.

  4. I had heard about putting collars around tomatoes, but never corn. Since this is my first year growing it, I was a little dismayed at all of the cutworms I was having to pick off of them. I will definitely be adding some collars to them today, so thanks for the idea!

    1. I learned the hard way- planted a bed of corn, seedlings sprouted, and then every single one was toppled! The odd thing is that the cutworms didn't bother anything else in the garden.

    Your vegetable gardens looks amazing! You will definitely be enjoying the fruits of your labor this summer. Lovely mosaic too. I'm visiting from The Tuesday Garden Party.

    1. I haven't had great luck with melons- last year the raccoons seemed to enjoy them before I had a chance to pick and the few I did pick didn't taste great, so I'm still learning how to grow melons.
