Organic Container Garden Update – Big Changes!

October 3, 2010

Here’s a look at the garden with some “historic” images from planting time. The only major change is that the lemon cucumbers didn’t make it, and have been replaced by new plantings of lacinato kale, which I’m looking forward to harvesting through the winter.

Organic bunching onions

Organic Golden & Red Beets

Organic Rainbow Chard

Mixed Salad Greens – Arugula, Red leaf lettuce, Green leaf lettuce, all organic

Little Gem Organic Lettuce

Lacinato Kale – New Planting

And here are some pictures of the problems I’ve been having primarily with the beets and chard–if anyone knows what this is and how to treat it please tell me!! I have been trying to make sure the plants are not overly wet, not watered at night to minimize moisture on leaves and have been spraying them with an organic friendly bug killer, but this seems to be more fungusy….

and here is the sick chard plant; I have been harvesting unafflicted leaves anyway but can’t seem to stop this once it’s effected a leaf.

And finally, here’s my latest batch of lettuce from the lettuce trough!
