Florida Garden Update 5/27/2011

Backyard Garden Update
Hey all... I've been very busy lately. Lots of student loan stress and lots of programming at work. These private student loan companies are nuts. I want to pay them what I can afford, but they want a set amount or nothing. They tell you one thing and do another.... But anyways, back to the garden updates.

My camera is still broke, so I'm borrowing my father-in-laws. Garden is doing pretty well. Bugs here and there, but nothing too bad. I ordered some organic BT (because I did find one worm in one tomato), so hopefully that will arrive soon.

I've gotten powerdy mildew on some of the dragon tongue beans. I think this variety isnt doing the best in our very humid environment. I sprayed some organic fungicide on them last night, but that usually kills the leafs on these beans. I might have to just pull them soon if I cant get it under control.

I've harvested quite a few suyo cucumbers and they are always great. Lots of cherry tomatoes also. Tons of big tomatoes on their way.

It's been in the high 90's almost everyday, with little to NO rain the past few weeks.
