Dug up the first bed, it was painful. It's never the perfect time to start pulling the summer veggies, but I finally jumped in. The picture below is the area that I took out an old diseased orange tree from. Now what to plant...? Grapes, blackberries, veggies, natives, another fruit tree. I am going to have to pull the trigger on this area in the next couple of weeks.
Not much going on in the garden, things are moving slow. The upside down hanging tomatoes are still going strong. The dark ones in the picture are Black Tomatoes, still getting a few smaller Watermelon, Better Boy and Rose. Lemon Cucumber are pretty much done, a few small ones. Figs have slowed down, but man are they sweet. Picked a few limes just to have. The squash are done but the peppers are doing well. Starting to think about the winter crops, but we still have a least a month of possible heat left. Don't want to start to early, still thinking about the trees that I want to plant this fall.
You are probably asking yourself what am I pointing at? Well, this is a farmers worst nightmare!!. There is a small depression, SQUIRRELS. I have been stalking them for the past couple of months. They have been especially active the past few weeks, I have resorted to waiting for them to emerge and then I take acrtion. Every time that I catch one there seems to be 2 more that take their place.
