Earthbox Garden Update

Our garden still looks awesome and is still producing lots of veggies!

The tomatoes are going like gangbusters, and there's even a little red tom in there almost ready to harvest!

The two pepper plants each have some little green bells on them ... I'm still waiting for some nice, sweet reds!

The squash are both doing okay. I grabbed two zucchinis and noticed a couple others that should be ready next week. The yellow squash had more failures than successes, but I did see a couple bees working away at the blossoms, so hopefully we'll get a couple more of those before the plants totally die out.

The rest of the yard is insane! Those one shrubs I cut down earlier (I think they're cat mint) are HUGE again and they've bloomed so they're covered with bees. I'm going to wait until the blooms die dwon before cutting them COMPLETELY down. Frankly I hate them, and intend to dig them out this fall. The grasses are outrageously tall, too, and while the landscaper said I would only need to cut them down once a year (in February, he said, after the last frost), I'm thinking I'll have to cut them down way before then.
