1. Corn...we are currently harvesting my second planting of corn. My third planting has formed ears and will be ready to begin harvesting about Aug. 1. Fantastic eating all summer.

2. Heat resistant tomatoes...Heatmaster is one variety and there are others. If you plant in a location that has afternoon shade...from about 3 pm on, it will greatly increase your chances. We've had several days of cloudy cool(er) weather lately due to the tropical storm and my remaining tomatoes have lots and lots of blooms.

All kinds of cow peas thrive now purple hulls, blackeyes, crowders, zipper, cream, etc. etc. I use them mainly as soil builders/crop rotations until first freeze...adding depleted N2 and other nutrients to soils that produced spring crops. I have about 60% of my garden in peas right now using them primarily as cover crop to suppress weeds and replenish soils for fall garden.

Of course okra, the "bestest" hot weather veggie going...can easily grow enough to feed entire community on little space.

I'm trying a new to me variety of veggie plant this year called "cucamelon" a cross between cucumber and watermelon. So far, it has stood up to the heat very well, but the fruit is small and "danity". Haven't tasted it yet but will soon.

Seems like summer conditions really exposes some weaknesses in my garden. I've added more compost and organic matter as compared to last year and that has seemingly paid off. I see where a layer of leafy mulch has been good for the crops. Paying close attention to the moisture in the soil adds benefits.


Tomatoes might be a good example. You have to make some of the right choices to have the season extend well into the heart of summer. The right varieties, good horticultural practices, a good site, and maybe a little luck from the weather.


I've enjoyed trying to make little incremental improvements to the things I do and the choices I make with the garden. This sub forum has been good for picking up tips on what to do when.

Cream peas. They waited until it got blistering hot I guess. I started to mow them down but they suddenly bloomed and next thing I knew they were loaded. We have frozen close to thirty two cup bags so far. I might get one more picking and I have already shelled some dried peas for seed next year and sent some back to my cousin in San Antonio. I got the seeds for these from him back in 2014 and they all came up when I planted this spring. Been sitting in the fridge for five years.

My spring garden pretty much burned up by mid-June.

I ripped everything out (raised garden in cattle protein tubs) and replanted on July 8th.

Squash, cucumbers and okra are going NUTS....they are as big after 9 days as they were after 4 weeks in the spring.

I just gotta keep the water up and make it through August and hoping they produce a ton through the fall.

Mad hatter pepper. I’m anxious to try this. Taking forever to turn red.




Jimmy nardellos. Three peppers remain. Such a tasty pepper. About all the leaves are gone. It appears some sort of disease, virus, defoliating the plants. Seems like all the peppers in the garden have a little, but some are worse than others, especially the jimmy nardellos.

In your 2nd picture some of those Pepper leaves have yellow circles with a brown spot center. That looks a lot like how Early Blight forms, in the early stages, on tomato leaves. Tomatoes and peppers are both in the Nightshade family and both can get Early Blight. As the yellow spots get bigger, the leaves will often fall of. It's difficult to get rid of, but you can slow it down.

Maybe do a search on Early Blight and see if you think that's it.

I think that’s it, based on the link.

Daconil will slow it down. Don't buy the pre-mixed sprayer though. That sprayer tends to plug up immediately. Buy the conc., mix it, and put it in your own sprayer. Follow directions.

Sounds good on the recommendation for daconil. I did pest control and mixed up chemicals from concentrate for a living for a number of years, but so far, I’ve avoided spraying or applying anything of that nature in the garden. I think next spring I’ll do less of the nightshade types like peppers and do something different, just to change up the plant mix and discourage the current line up of pests, including fungi.

Those peppers that lost their leaves are now putting on new ones off the stems. I might leave some of the peppers through the rest of the summer and into the fall just to see how they do. I’m adding some extra chicken manure to the bases to help the peppers fight off fungi.

The Malabar spinach I have is really starting to grow now it loves the heat.

I bought the seeds online since I could not find any already started. I also got some

baby watermelon seeds and they are doing ok. They are just starting to produce and should have some to eat soon.
Don't have much else but a few jalapeno and some other peppers that don't have long.

I pulled all the tomatoes and debating what to do next.
