We saw purple blossoms on the eggplants, and we saw there is one small eggplant fruit. We moved dirt away from the fruit. There are some purple peppers and purple blossoms:
We also saw some more white blossoms on
some peppers and some small green fruit.
We know we will have many peppers because there are many blossoms.
There are some tomatoes that are turning red.
There are some more yellow blossoms on the tomato plants. We tried tasting a cherry tomato to see if the tomatoes are ripe to pick. However, the tomato we tasted was sour, so the tomatoes are not yet ready to pick.
We checked if the tomato vines are growing in the right place, and moved the vines if they were not.
We see the bean plants are taller, and we picked a few green beans.
There are still insects that are eating the leaves of the green bean plants
We needed to move some cucumber
vines onto the trellis.
Mounding the onion plants
The onion plants were lying down in the dirt, so we mounded the onion plants today.
We have 4 plots in our garden at Arlington Hills Open Door Learning Center.
Morning Glory plants are blocking the sun to the pepper plants
Today we needed to weed a little bit, and we also had to take out some morning glories that were blocking the sun from our pepper plants
One of the pepper plants had many buds. We also saw there are many blossoms on the eggplants.
We planted tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. Today we saw there are some green tomatoes. We took away the leaves from the tomato plants that were growing too close to the ground. We did not need to weed today.
We picked some beans that were ready to harvest. There were some more blossoms and buds on the bean plants, and we also saw insects crawling on the plants.
Cabbage plants in plot 3
We mounded the onions and cabbage plants. There were some cucumber plants that were growing through the fence. We didn’t want the cucumbers growing on the outside of the fence, so we moved those vines so that they will grow on the inside of the fence.
There are 3 big Calla Lily plants growing that we planted along the inside edge of our garden. We are waiting for the flowers to bloom.
