What A Difference 2 weeks Make In A Garden

Well it has been 2 weeks since I posted anything about my garden and since that time everything has really taken off. I have harvested all of my lettuce, some sweet banana peppers and some broccoli. Below is a view of a few of the pots I have on the back deck. They are mostly various styles of pepper plants but I also have a couple of tomato plants and I am actually growing some Stevia...front plant center and the one behind it.

 Some of the pepper plants. One plant has a minimum of 11 peppers on it already

 Now for the raised garden...front left are a couple of sweet pepper plants. Next to them are my broccoli plants. On the right front side used to be my lettuce plants but I harvested them and now there is a zucchini plant...small plant but very fast maturity...30 days. It already has a couple of gold in color zucchinis growing on this small plant. On the rear right side I have 2 different types of tomatoes with quite a few already growing on each plant. There are 2 other larger style zucchini plants next to the tomato plants and then we have my corn on steroids. Some of the stalks are over 6 feet and it is only mid June. That sweet corn sure will be tasty after being harvested.







I bought Veronica 2 hydrangeas. Hydrangeas are one of just a couple of flowers that she really likes. I put them in big planter pots. I decided to practice taking some photos of the hydrangeas using my new camera and here is what I ended up with:
I am going to acidify the soil in the pot to get the flowers blue













 Below are photos taken of the hydrangea that is on our back deck that is also in a large pot
