The plants are going bananas. I can’t keep up! Unfortunately I’m super busy at school now too and don’t have a lot of time to tend to everything!
The South balcony is an absolute mess right now. I’ve still got to repot most of my bell peppers, one tomato, pull out last year’s chard, nd find room for everthing else.
The yellow pear tomato’s stalk is as thick as my finger. It’s going to be a huge plant!
Just got our first female cucumber flowers, which I tried to hand pollinate:
Nasturtiums are *everywhere* and my mesclun greens are growing fast. Time for salad!
The crabapple tree has lost most of its flowers and is dripping with baby fruits. Can’t wait till they ripen!! I’ve heard for a healthier harvest to thin or the fruit but I’m not sure if I’ll try that.
The flowers on the olive tree finally bloomed and it’s covered in pollen. How cool would it be to get olives this year?!
The yarrow I planted from seed is growing really slowly. It’s still covered in bird netting because it’s so delicate. Hurry up already!
Pole beans are growing several inches per day. I’m trying to train them up this pole:
And, I think I have tomato blight? I’ve never seen this before but I bought some copper fungicidal spray that will hopefully clear it up. My parsley is plagued by powdery mildew so I hope to take care of that as well.
