Topsy Turvy's doing well so far. Strawberries and tomatoes. The tomato plant comes out the bottom and the stalk is still heading for the sky. Some fruit will weigh it back down.

Not that well this year. My potatoes got the blight becasue I used potatoes from last year to grow this yearsl; my squash and zuchini got vine bores and powdery mildew, my tomatoes are getting early blight, and my basil had the new strain of downy mildew. But so far the beans as still looking okay and about to flower, for the 1st time ever my onions are growing, and my peppers are small but growing, and I have cucumbers that sprouted from my compost and I have amarath growing all over. Oh, the trees have 3 plumns, no apples, tons of pears, and some peaches.

A very strage garden for me this year...

I now have 4 thriving zucchini plants, and my tomatoes are beginning to blossom. Still can't afford soil for the third container, but since okra can be planted through July, I will probably do that. I want to try making some hot pickled okra. I love it, but it is so expensive at the store.
