Things have been going quite smoothly in the garden. Everything is relatively healthy with minimal bug damage. I am fertilizing on a regular basis using miracle grow and fish emulsion. Spraying with neem oil and BT to keep any fungus and aphids under control. Preventative maintenance is the key folks!
Green beans are abundant! After a slow start at blooming, I can't seem to pick them fast enough. Carrots are also still producing. I'm so glad I planted every few weeks so we'll have carrots all thru the summer. Fall planting will begin in August.

My in ground potato patch bit the dust. I fear there is bacteria in the area where they were planted, or the cheap top soil I used to mound them was a carrier. Either way, they all died off so suddenly, it had to be bacterial wilt. I don't think I can use that area for any of the night shade varieties as they are susceptible.
