How does your garden grow?

While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

Our container herbs, peppers and mini tomatoes are really starting to produce.

The two little trees I bought the week before last did not make it.  They will be dug up today, if the rain stops and returned.  I just knew I should not plant anymore this year! 
It is raining again, good for the plants but makes the grass grow so I have to mow more! 
I have to get my reel mower fixed! but at this point the grass that I need to cut with it is too long anyway so I have to use the other mower.

We picked another quart of black raspberries yesterday.  I say "thank you, birds" as they are the ones who planted them.  I didn't

I purchased lovage after I realized that I did not have any in my garden. The plants are  growing. I need to separate the lemon grass and replant it.

Our herbs and peppers in containers are producing well.  We also had some white egg plants and one small purple one.

I've picked some zucchini and some peppers.  Tomatoes are growing but still green.  I had to encourage them to go back into their confinement.  They want to stick their "arms" out through the squares in the wire

Even with all the rain we have had the pepper plants are still about the same size as when I planted them almost a month ago.  The leaves are all brown and seem to be drying up just like last year(even though we didn't have much rain last year).  The tomato plants are getting bigger every day and are full of small green tomatoes.  Maybe by the end of July we might have some ripe ones lol.

Unfortunately, the rabbits got into the garden and ate most of my lettuce.  You would think they had enough to eat with all the grass they are constantly munching on.  Hopefully the electronic thing I have out there will keep them away now.

Herbs, miniature tomatoes and peppers and eggplants are coming along just fine.

If you are in the Northwest 'burbs of Chicago the problem may be a bit too much rain.  The roots may be water logged and not getting enough oxygen.
I think the same thing is happening with 2 pots of Rosemary that I have on my back porch. I have tried to dry them out as much as possible but I may loose both pots. 
My hydrangea are loving this though, and the hostas seem very happy.

I will pull a couple of small tomatoes in the AM. It rained again and we are under flood watch conditions.

In our container pots peppers, herbs and egg plant continue to do  well - squash not so well.

I had to pick all the peaches from my little tree as the raccoons were getting them.  They aren't quite ripe yet so I'm hoping they'll ripen on the counter.  If I hadn't picked them i wouldn't get any as the destructive critters would have them all.  They even flattened all the irises, lilies and bachelor buttons I had growing under the tree.  Anyone know of a good  'coon repellent?  Don't want a dog.

The electronic pest repellants seem to work well for larger animals.  I have a regular battery one and the other is a solar power with rechargeable batteries.  I ordered both of them through mail order.  Carol Wright Gifts has both kinds in their catalogue and also on-line.

Check with your State Agriculture extension office for information on raccoons and other pest. They will be able to assist you.
