One hot pepper (closest uncaged plant) lost all but two bottom leaves .. two golden summer were destroyed. One rainbow mater, and romas rutgers kinda squashed. Aphids have started went around and smooshed them today.
Replaced two closest golden summers with three small rainbow pepper mix. Also placed a rainbow pepper by hot peppers. Took out rainbow mater right side of mint and replaced with a rutger (i think) . also replaced a few of the roma/rutgers with rutgers(i think)
far left cherry chadwick looks dead.
Replaced the Fuji a few weeks ago, and the anna is now as tall as me. Fertilized them today, along with the blackberries. As for the blackberries, three of four plants have new canes started!! Hooray!
Four of the bush beans have sprouted and I planted one large red pot with more today.

Okay, things have been crazy.
Seeds started inside are at varied levels of success. Waited a long time to "pot-up" bells, romas and rutgers (due to traveling plans) May have waited too long as now they seem to have stopped growing.
Hotpeppers and Rainbows are doing well. They were potted up first. Hot peppers have not grown much in the last few weeks, but it has been cold. I was going to start really hardening off early this week, but crazy wind made me wait until today (thursday). I have put them out on afew afternoons, but this is their first full day outside in the shade. I was planning on placing them in garden this weekend we will see.
Black berries have arrived, but are not unpacked.
Apple trees were planted, but the Fuji was eaten by the dog. The Anna was doing well before the wind. Hopefully it survived.
