I’ve spent most of this summer concerned that my garden was never going to produce anything. This is partially accurate, because it hasn’t produced a whole lot so far.

I think I’m coming to the conclusion, though, that the new beds I put in aren’t getting enough sun. They’re oriented east-west, and unfortunately there are some pretty big trees just on the other side of the fence that keep the beds from getting early morning sun. I paid close attention to it on Sunday, and it wasn’t until 11:30am that the tomatoes were finally in full sun.

They start to lose it in the late afternoon because of the house and the garage, so they’re probably only getting 5-6 hours of full sun. 6 hours is the recommended minimum for tomatoes. Boo. I may just have chosen a bad site.

The good news, though, is that my plants are finally starting to produce something. We’ve got baby heirloom tomatoes, baby cherry tomatoes, baby peppers and a baby melon. It may just be that I’ll have the last garden in Columbia producing vegetables. As long as they eventually produce, I don’t mind too much.
