Tonight I am doing a catch up post on all the warm season crops I have planted. Most veggies in this post went in during the first week of June. This is about 2 weeks later then normal but this was unavoidable with our cool start to spring. The good news is out temps are hovering around normal now so the warm season crops should be pleased.
Burgundy Okra, grown from seed shared by EG . I planted a couple of these in a big hanging basket for some added heat. They are kind of limping along at the moment. They should get growing once they root in and our warm summer weather arrives.
These are Blue Lake Pole Beans. They were direct sown under a A frame bamboo trellis. Can't wait for fresh green beans!
Here we have Dragon Tongue beans that were grown as starts in rootrainers. These are my favorite bush bean, so tasty! They produce a pretty good dry beans too.
This wee thing is a Numex Joe E Parker Pepper which is an Anaheim Pepper. I planted 9 in my smallest raised bed.
This pepper is a Sport Pepper, like the pickled ones on Chicago style hotdogs. If they grow well in this hanging basket I'll pickle them this fall.
I am growing two Parthenocarpic cucumbers this year. They only produce female flowers and are seedless. Because they don't need cross pollination they are suppose to be more productive. This particular plant is Rocky F1 (Persian/Greenhouse type) and the other variety I am trying is Adam Gherkin F1 (European Pickling). Both will be trained on a trellis.
These are Montreal Market Melons. A Canadian heirloom that was world renowned in its day. They will also be grown on a trellis.
Last but not least, one of the Tomatoes. I have Tomatoes all over the place including 3 parts of the garden, 2 hanging baskets & one in a half barrel filled with potatoes. If you would like to see a list of tomatoes I am growing this year check out this link .
