Welp. Goodbye to my pepper plants! I wasnt planning on overwintering them so I'll go ahead and bury them today or tomorrow lol since the temps will fall below freezing.

Got this crazy idea (thanks youtube) to try and sprout some pomegranate seeds from fruit my daughter brought home. Ate the juice, cleaned the seeds, wrapped in paper towels, sprayed with water & bagged them.

My poor pepper plants are so confused lol. The weather has been up and down here in Central Texas lately. It's been cold and it's been hot in the time span of a couple of weeks. Today was one of the hotter days but the temperature is quickly dropping right now as a cold front is moving in. My peppers stopped flowering and then when the temperatures rose they started flowering again. Not complaining though! . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #containergardening #growingpeppers #growingbellpeppers #bellpeppers #urbangardening #urbangarden #urbangardener #flowers #bellpepperflowers #pepperflower

My TAM jalapeno plant has been, by far, the easiest, most prolific producer in my garden.

Late blight disease 😑 Harvested my red zebra tomatoes and will let them ripen on the counter. But the plant must be trashed. πŸ˜” You know - gardening is a hobby of hopefulness. Hopeful the seeds will germinate. Hopeful that they'll grow. Hopeful they'll set fruit. Hopeful the fruit will mature. Hopeful that pests and disease won't do damage. *sigh* While so many of my plants have succumbed to diseases and pests, I'll be gardening still. Some have survived! πŸŽ‰ My tomato plants must be trashed but the bright side? I can use those pots to plant something new. It's a frustrating but helpful cycle. I've only been gardening since March and I've learned a LOT in a short amount of time. But thankful for the process and yes, I still enjoy gardening just the same. πŸ™‚ . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #redzebratomatoes #growingtomatoes #gardendiseases #lateblight #tomatoblight #hopefulgardener

Things are doing so well for my #squarefootgarden. Not 100% awesome, I have some garlic thats dragging its feet and my corn is still getting nibbled by something. But I am sooo excited to see BLOSSOMS on my bird house gourds, peas, pickle bush cucs, and ground cherries. I’m wondering if I should feed them some potassium to encourage blossom growth but I think I’ll play it safe and stick to my compost and the 7β€’7β€’2 Down to Earth fertilizer. #gardeningobsession #compost #organicgardening #zone8gardening #growyourown #fallgarden #easttexasgardening #tylertexas #downtoearthfertilizers

One of my bests @leggomymaego came over this afternoon and helped me do some garden cleaning. My zucchini and pumpkin plants had fallen prey to pests and were slowly dying. So we dug them up and threw them away! Anyhow- her dad loves peppers so I sent these home with her to give to her dad! I also sent a baby tomatillo home for her to give her mom as, hopefully, a promise of harvest to come! 😁 😊 . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #containergardening #growingjalapenos #tamjalapeno #growingpeppers #jalapeno #jalapenos #urbangardener #urbangardening #urbangarden

Me - Mom, why are my zucchini growing like this? The flower isn't dropping off any of them! Not even my largest one. Mom- Not sure! Is it big enough yet? Me - This thing is huge. It's the size of my forearm. Mom - Its not THAT big! Me - Wait, let me send you a pic *sends pic* Mom - *laughing crazy hard* πŸ˜‚ Needless to say - they'll still get eaten! Zucchini plants are SO prolific! And I picked some jalapenos today as well. Its chili night. The one with the red was SO delicious. I took a bite and it was the best tasting jalapeno I have ever had.

Just some harvesting from this evening. This zucchini had gotten huge and I have quite a few more on the plant so I decided to go ahead and cut it off. I know I probably should have waited until the blossom dropped off but oh well! This cucumber is supposed to be a spacemaster but it looks nothing like what it should. That is curious to me. And the tiny little tomato is from the yellow pear tomato plant which is now dead. After receiving a ton of water and feeding it, it still had not improved. I think it got major heat stress and just was never able to recover. But since my littles planted it, I saved this one tomato for them. ❀ . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #containergardening #zucchini #growingzucchini #gardening #garden #urbangardener #urbangardening #cucumber #growingcucumbers #tinytomatoes

My wee be little pumpkins are growing and growing. The first pic shows my 1st two pumpkins. The next few pics show some of my babies that are coming. And that isn't even all of them. I should have plenty for my littles next month. 🧑 There are aphids on some of them but with this rain, I haven't been able to spray my neem oil, so hopefully they will be okay. Per my mom and @theplantchick (check out her website), you don't need to always apply pest control at every single sighting. They seem to be okay for now but if I see my pumpkins suffering, they'll get the neem. . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #wee #growingpumpkins #weeblittle #weebelittle #weebelittlepumpkin #pumpkins #urbangardening #urbangardener

It's been raining a lot lately so my husband and I haven't had the chance to do yardwork or gardening. But today- a break! πŸŽ‰ I fed, clipped dead leaves, checked on growth, and also dead headed and fertilized our petunias. He mowed and edged the front and back yards, weeded, took care of ant beds, and applied weed and feed. The rain will soon come and continue to green up things and cause them to grow. (Btw, shout out to @epicbar for the awesome cap.)

Before the rain hit, I went out and pruned some flowers from my red zebra tomato and my roma tomato plants. They need to still grow and I did not want the plant putting so much energy into producing fruit right now so I cut those flowers off. I love how the tomato plant itself smells like a fresh tomato! I purchased the Roma tomato @bonnieplants plant last week at @loweshomeimprovement and placed it into a container. The red zebra was planted by seed on 7/25. . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #containergardening #growingtomatoes #redzebratomatoes #romatomatoes #tomatoes #urbangardener #urbangardening #containertomatoes #bonnieplants

Hoping all the rain we've had the past 48 hours has given them a boost in growing however - gotta wait some days to allow that sugar to get concentrated in the melon before I water again! πŸ‰ . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #growingwatermelon #sugarbabywatermelon #watermelon

Sugar baby watermelons are...mostly ok! Harvested my oldest melon but I’m thinking it was overripe based on the slightly mushy center. I’ll get it right next time!!! #organicgardening #sugarbabywatermelon #easttexasgardening #zone8gardening #grownathome

My #jarrahdalepumpkins are doing so-so. The oldest plant has about one strong leaf thanks to a SVB massacre the two babies are looking good tho! My #jackbelittlepumpkins are doing great! Can’t wait to see how these turn out. #organicgardening #backyardgarden #growyourown #truediy #falldecor #pumpkinpatch #zone8gardening #easttexasgardening

Bell pepper seedling process. Fed them a diluted fish emulsion fertilizer mixture last night now that they've developed their 2nd sets of leaves. My little pepper babes! . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #bell #bellpeppers #growingpeppers #purplebeauty #miniyellowbellpepper #kingofthenorth #seedlings #fishfertilizer

My tomatillo plant is loaded with blooms, but no tomatillos yet. I'm thinking that it's possibly too hot right now? Not sure, but we'll see what happens. . . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #growingtomatillos #tomatilloplant #purpletomatillo #tomatilloflower #tomatillos

My wee be little pumpkin plants exploded over the past few days! My husband and I were out of town and some friends cared for my garden while we were gone. πŸ’œ Since they are small pumpkins and the vining won't be crazy long, I'm using tomato cages to train the vines and keep the eventual pumpkin fruit off of the ground. The white in the leaves, I've learned, is common to pumpkin plants and is called, I believe, silver mottling. . . #growing #organicgardening #blackgirlsgarden #browngirlsgarden #zone8 #zone8b #zone8gardening #raisedbedgardening #garden #gardening #grow #growingpumpkins #weeblittle #weebelittle #weebelittlepumpkin #tomatocage #silvermottling
