Interesting gardening year. First there was too much rain and now not enough. All the veggies are doing good but the blueberries were kind of small this year. I was buying these sweet peppers at the grocery store and decided to save some seeds to try growing them. In the store they are bagged and there red, orange and yellow but the orange ones had most of the seeds. Started picking them a week ago and there great roasted on the grill.
My tomatoes started great and then it was too hot and dry for a week and they started to wilt even though I was watering every evening. Now with a few days of partial shade and cooler temps and rain, they are doing great again.
From about 5 plants I would say I have enough tomatoes to meet the family usage level for another month or so and that's just from what I have already picked! There's plenty more still growing.
The onions turned out great too. I think I will expand my garden next year and invest in a simple automatic watering solution.
