That is a lot of peppers, I only have four plants. The tomato rows look great!
The cauliflower looks perfect, the Tatsoi looks...well who on earth shot your plants with a shotgun?
I can just image how the rest of the season is going to be around here with the bugs and the blights? Gardening is always so beautiful in the early spring, then by early summer things start to change. Already I am squashing stink bugs, and catching katydids eating my rose buds. The squash bugs and vine borers will destroy the squash normally right after it starts making. Hopefully the cucumbers will last a little longer if the O'possum doesn't destroy them all first. I just hope this year I can avoid all the tomato blights, last year was great, the year before the blights hit early.

I know what you mean. We had an excellent year for tomatoes last year but we never got any peppers. Try to imagine that many peppers and they were loaded with peppers and the stupid voles took a bite out of every single one. They ate my melons too. They didn't bother the squash.

Funny, I can never get squash because of the vine borers and squash bugs. I didn't get summer squash last year but I was diligent with the bugs and did get some winter squash.i wrapped my stems with aluminum foil.i'll try anything.

If I would have kept my row cover on the tatsoi would have been fine. Usually that's how mt Chinese cabbage looks but it's not too bad this year.
