This is what the garden is up against now. This picture was taken at 10:30 AM looking south. The peppers are just getting the first direct sun of the day.
And here’s a picture taken at 3:30 PM the same day, facing WNW. The peppers have been in the shade about 20 minutes or so. There’s a large red oak tree that casts a lot of afternoon shade in the fall. The beds get about 4 ½ hours of direct sun right now, and less everyday.
I don’t know if the Chinese cabbage will get to a head before it just stops growing. I’m still hoping for some lettuce. It’s just about over, and I’m already planning out next years beds.
Yields for the week: Snap beans: 21 oz; Eggplant 12 oz; Sweet peppers 12 oz.
