Every year some vegetables in the garden do better than others. Some have major problems like the the Early Blight that is hitting my tomatoes this year. But other vegetables like the beets, cucumbers, zucchini and green beans are doing great! I even planted some onions for the first time and they were successful-small but delicious.
More Successes–Beautiful Brandywines and Hot Compost
And even though the tomatoes are infected I have some beauties growing and hopefully they will ripen OK. So far, the blight has just infected the leaves. Lastly when I opened the ComposTumbler this morning to check my new batch of compost, there was steam coming up from the compost. And I could feel the heat coming from the compost. So this is working really well to see steam from the compost on a 80 degree morning. Lately I have been getting free coffee grounds from Starbucks and throwing them in. Not all stores do this but some specially package coffee grounds for gardens so check it out!
