Here are the tomato plants and pepper plants. It's kinda hard to see the peppers... they are to the right of the front 2 tomato plants.
Friday the first thing I did was put nitrogen on the corn. Our soil is pretty "blah" to say the least. Not only does the corn need the nitrogen (notice the leaves yellowing), but it also gives it a nice kick in the pants and helps it do really well anyway. To do that I used the hoe to dig a trench down the side of each row (since I have double rows I did one on each side of the double row) and then shoogied the granular nitrogen into the trench. After that I covered it up and watered it to help it get started into the soil.
Then I planted more corn. 1 whole double row and 2 three-quarter length double rows. There were 2 volunteer squash or zucchini plants growing and I didn't want to eliminate them for the corn. If all the corn does well, I hope to have a bumper crop!! Last year we didn't have nearly as much as I wanted, so I'm all gung-ho on it this year.
And of course watered the newly planted corn :) I was a little surprised how dry the dirt was. It has been a bit since it's rained, and it was ALL dry. When I ran the tiller there was a nice cloud of dust kicking up around me.
At the end of the day I spent some time in the beans. I weeded about 3/4 the way down 2 of the rows. I hope to get the rest finished this week. They are starting to bloom, and I killed 2 bugs, too. I didn't notice lots of eggs, but I imagine they are out there. I just hope they don't do too much damage before I notice them and get them sprayed.
In the empty space above the tomatoes and peppers I tilled that all up and planted 1 whole row of squash (yellow straight-neck) and 1 whole row of zucchini. It is probably a bit late to be planting seeds for them, but we have a longer growing season so I'm hoping that we get a nice crop :) I know, it sounds like a lot to me, too, but so far I haven't had a season yet without something getting my squash/zucchini plants. I figure if we have too much I can give it away. I think I would rather plant/get more than not plant as much and not have enough.
