June 27th - Laid one bail of hay along my paths and around the base of all my plants. Wasn't quite enough for the whole plot so will need half a bail more to finish the paths and zucchini

July 4th- 17th- Continued to water and weed everyday. Picked a couple tomatoes, first ones of the season. Garden looks to be on track.
 
July 20th- Finished drip system as well as caged tomatoes. Drip system looks good and I laid the water along my tomatoes so they shall be getting the brunt of the drip line water. We will see how it turns out. Also today I mixed fish fertilizer and put it on my peppers and squashes.

July 23rd- Watered and weeded the garden some more. The fish fertilizer helped out my plants a lot. Definitely a noticeable difference on my squashed and peppers.
