30 Bananas a Day!

June 23rd Garden Update (Corn, beans, melons, peppers)

I posted last week here, the progress on the Tomatoes, Corn, Beans, Melons and other fruits and vegetables. Within 10 days, the corn grew a foot as well as the Beans. The Tomato fruits are growing larger; The Cucumber, peppers, and Melons are blooming.
I am continuing to Harvest lettuce, strawberries, and blueberries. Today I picked the first Yellow Squash of the season. Soon I will be harvesting the first Tomatoes and Grapes, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Cucumbers.

It's a possibility I will be Transplanting 100+ Tomato and pepper plants in the Gardens. It's also a possibility I will be tilling a spot for Beans and Cold weather crops (Lettuces, spinach, carrot, Brussels, Broccoli) in the following days. 
Here are some photos from the last couple of days...

100 Melon plants alongside Corn & Beans

Other  Watermelon plants (approx 15) are growing alongside my Tomato and Pepper garden. We purchased these because one plant was already blooming.

The watermelon in the photos below are the Yellow Watermelon variety. I haven't tasted this variety before, and it would surely be a treat to try it for the first time from my own garden!

Peppers were purchased last week. The Cowhorn and Jalapeno peppers are already fruiting. The other Green peppers are blooming. When I transplanted these peppers, I added some compost as well.

Marcais, thank you taking the time to look at the photos / The 4 gardens are over three different properties (my Cousins, Grandparents, and Mothers) but the gardens perhaps add up to 1/3 of an acre. I am ever-expanding with fruit trees, fruit bushes, nut trees, and vegetable garden space-- so it will be several more years till I have a permaculture forest of 1-2 acres. :)

Meadow Flower, If the Yellow Watermelon actually harvest, it will be my first! I'm sure yellow tastes the same as/similar to conventional. Thank you for always taking the time to appreciate, admire, and leave feedback :)
