Weekly Farm Update: 8/7/11
As you can see, the strawberries are thriving in the pot and have sent out shoots looking for more room. I just need to find the room for it but I am thinking of adding another 3x3 to the main area of the garden. There is room on the end of the garden, near the patio. The drip system goes right over that area anyways, so nothing will really need to be moved.
Peppers, tomatoes and a few eggplants have come out of these three beds but they are not done producing yet. I did some light harvesting today but more needs to be down tomorrow. I'm not sure where we will find the room in the refrigerator but they will soon find homes.
The weather here has been funky here and the plants don't know what to do. They look like they've had enough and begin to wilt. A few days later, there is new growth and all of sudden, it is completely lush. There is so much green that it does not look like the same plant.
This has happened with this tomato plant and it has many small green fruits on it. I love Southern California for the longer seasons, but it is strange sometimes.
Til next week!
P.S: This week's photos are HERE!
