Corn has grown fantastic and every one has 2 beautiful corn ears growing big and juicy on them…..my husband is 6 feet and when he stands on the bed beside the corn it towers over him…..as my youngest says WOW the corn is going to the moon…..

The Capsicum have done not to bad……a couple of bushes have beautiful little capsicums on them…..there is a couple ready to use….the bushes are not real big,but are slowly get there…..

Zucchini….wow what can I say other than WOW!!!!!! as I have said in other post they are doing really well….could not be happier……

Squash….sunburst yellow squash….very happy with these, they are producing very well……my butternut pumpkin bushes are growing and spreading well hopeful soon there will be little pumpkin….

The Beans that I planted with the corn are doing fantastic…..climbing all over the corn nicely…..they are now starting to flower so we should have beans soon…..

Tomatoes….I have 1 bed all with tomatoes another with just a couple and some tomatoes in pots……they are all doing very well……the one in the garden bed have grown into a tomato jungle….they all have plenty of tomatoes on them……very happy to say they are all starting to get ripe….the ones in pot are doing really well as well….have even pick a few off them as well……can’t wait until I have to many then I can make some sauce, chutney, relishes, dried some……

My lettuce is doing nicely….growing well….have even be able to pick a few leaves…

I also put in watermelon which has started to run…..so here hoping for lots of flowers for lots of beautiful watermelons…..

My eggplants are flowering and growing well…..

Overall my garden is doing well and producing lots…..happy days in my garden so far…….each week everything gets a good feed of seasol & power feed, good watering and mulched heavily with sugar cane mulch….the corn got mulch with the old snow peas bushes this seems to have work well….the butternut pumpkins are mulched with straw.
