Heavenly Blue morning glories bloom on veranda level. Veranda level MGs doing well. Alley level; not so well. I am considering eliminating alley level planters next Spring due to difficulty in maintenance (i.e. watering) and their lack of performance these last bunch of years. The veranda level produced nice MGs this year for a change.
A sunflower grows on the veranda north wall box on 7/3. Haven’t taken current shots in awhile. Tomatoes look good. No sign of mites knock on wood. I’m doing the cold water shower technique with every watering. The sunflowers on main roof look very good. I might plant another set of seeds to see if I can get another wave of sunflowers after this current set blooms and peters out. Habeneros are recovering and have sprouted new leaves. Looks like I may get some habs this year.
The center box on west wall veranda level is new this year. It’s about 9 cu. ft. of root space. This spot used to hold 2 3 cu. ft. containers. Making one big container increased root space by 50%. The vines are doing extremely well this year in general and this box in particular. Much of this might have to do with the continuous wet and cool weather we have had this season so far.
