Some good news and some bad in the garden. The stuff that is doing well is doing really well, and that which failed did so spectacularly.
Lots of broccoli coming out now. There is an occasional green worm but not bad at all for pests.
Cucumbers climbing their trellis
Bush beans with a few non-blooming nasturtiums in front.
A little itty bitty cauliflower. First one to show up!
The tomatoes are blooming. So far no sign of the blight that wiped out my tomatoes for the last two years. It’s early yet, but they do look very healthy. I have 5 varieties coming in.
Please ignore the invading grass on this one! This is my “three sister” bed. The corn is about knee high. The pole beans have mostly sprouted as have the squash in the center of the corn circle. This is a first try for this technique for me. The beans are supposed to grow up the cornstalks, while fixing nitrogen at the corn’s hungry roots. And the squash are supposed to spread out and prevent weeds. Hah, we”l see. I have six beds like this, each six feet long.
Cabbage. One of the disasters. This is my best head. It was perfect about two days ago and I debated cutting it since all the rest look like swiss cheese. It was so small that I didn’t and it got attacked badly. I am not interested in using any pesticides, so I will try row covers next year as my mom told me too. 🙂
The disgusting creatures eating MY cole slaw. Tons of gelatinous eggs and half a dozen super juicy cabbage worms. I fed the whole mess to the sheep.
LOOK closely. There are little blueberries just beginning to blush. These bushes were just planted last spring so I wasn’t really expecting anything yet.
On a happier note, I picked some fresh veggies for dinner. A little small in quantity but big in flavor!
