Hey everyone. Planted my garden late (early June) this year so I am just starting to get some harvest. My cucumber plants are a machine. It is incredible how many cucumbers we are harvesting from just a few plants (4). I also am very happy with my rain barrel. I recommend installing two of them if you can. What I do now is that when I use up the water from my main barrel I use a small pump to pump water from the second barrel (off the house) to the barrel near the garden. The pump cost me about 99.00 and it was a good investment.
I have to say the only thing I have had problems with are my zucchini. Since I had no idea how big they get I over planted my container and lost all but two of the plants. The two that are left seem to be doing ok now so hopefully I can get a few zucchinis out of them yet.
Here are some updated shots. Very excited to see my eggplants and cantaloupes coming in.
There are more shots in my album:
