Backyard Gardening #4: 2019 June Week 4

Backyard Garden Highlight:

Our regular plants are growing faster as the summer is coming.

Now, strawberry season is almost over. Based on my experience, after strawberry, we are starting to collect blueberry. Yes, blueberry is almost ready.

This week, we purchased new plants from FredMeyer.

We like Japanese plants provided by Iwasaki Brothers. http://www.iwasaki-bros.com/

New Plants:

Watermelon, cucumber, bean, and winter squash. Watermelon and winter squash grow horizontally. Cucumber and bean grow vertically, so they need some support.

Growing in progress:

Japanese Long Eggplant: I am expecting in a couple of weeks, start collecting some eggplants. Here in Oregon, we can harvest eggplants twice (July and September). 

Tomato: This year, I am trying to prune tomato frequently. Last year, I didn’t. So, when we went out for vacation, tomato started growing everywhere to left and right and up. When I came back in July, tomato plants grew so much that they fell down without support. 

Harvest:

Finally Blueberry is ready to harvest. This blueberry tree is three years old.
