I'm glad they're growing good for you.

It'll be close but they should ripen depending on how big they are now. Next year should be better since it's grown so much and developed a good root system. All of the trees I've grown from cuttings take a few years to figure out the right time to start putting out figs but once they start they usually produce good. It's like the tree is trying to figure out the correct timing to go dormant and when to wake up. Does that make sense?

Yes, that does make sense.
This is how big the figs are as of about two weeks ago.

I don't think Cilantro cuttings will root--you have to take rooted sprouts- but seeds will germinate really fast--

Yes, I had no success with cilantro cuttings.

I have been eating a lot of grapes, lol. Tomatoes are coming off here and there, the 5 Okra plants are giving me 6-8 pods a day, I have been picking them small then slicing, freezing and vacuum sealing.

Pickled (Lacto-Fermentd)some more cucumbers, I tried one after 4 days and it was definitely not ready, tried the pickles again on the 8th day and they were really good.
It has Been a bit rainy lately, everything is growing nicely, actually it is getting a little out of hand, I have been doing some minor trimming.

Nothing in the Bat houses yet.

Started tying up my Vertical Cantaloupe. I believe there's about 10 that may make it in time to fully ripen.

My Rocky top lettuce sprouted but nothing from the Romaine or Red Beets yet.

I'm going to have to come up with a trellis for the Goji Berry plant.

One eggplant plant has some Flea Beetles, not sure if I'm going to do anything or terminate the plant, I may spray with some water, Rubbing alcohol and dish soap. That same plant has a few eggplants with some spots, I'm pretty sure this is the start of some type of fruit rot or Anthracnose?

































This is the only plant with Flea Beetles...fingers crossed.












The plant in the Hugelkultur bed looks unaffected so far.






I turned off the water to my raised beds in the back yard, well all but one, I cant reach the shutoff on the 3rd&4th section of the Hugelkultur bed, I'll try to get to it this weekend.

I have been a lazy gardener lately, I feel like I'm burnt out from gardening this year.
I have a tomato plant that needs to be cut back due to some disease but it's been too dam hot. A lot of the tomatoes in the hugelkultur beds are splitting, but everything is still producing.

All three eggplant plants in the raised bed are garbage, I may cut them back.

I'm debating on tearing out a lot of plants and putting in a cover crop, I'm just so disgusted looking at some of these plants!

Ants and Aphids have taken over the back hill so I made some Terro Baits and put them out.

Beets, lettuces and Broccoli are in a state of limbo, but then again I could never grow a fall crop.

Okra is still pumping out pods, the peppers are still not doing too well. I get a pepper here and there but not like I should.

Tried a few new recipes, Cheesy Okra Fritters and Eggplant Lasagna.I'll post them here and in the recipe section

Turned off the water lines to the other Hugelkultur beds.

Replenished my Coriander spice jar.

Still freezing Okra.

We have been snacking on grapes every day.
