Now that real summer has kicked in this week….YES!….
Lettuce is really starting to bolt; this is the longest we’ve had it last in good condition into summers. Impending harvest this next week, so the giant squash can can room to roam. A first perfect zucchini is waiting for an owner, with more little ones behind. (How fast will it become a bat?) One spaghetti squash plant is decommissioned, as it was crawling over the lavender, nasturtiums, and into the street. Squash, cukes, and melons starting to crawl everywhere.
Once again it looks like we will have bush beans maturing at the same time, even if strategically sowed 3 weeks apart. At least they are a variety of greens, yellow, and purple. The pole beans growing on the corn stalks looked like they were going to bind any emerging ears, so they got pulled. We haven’t got this bean and corn cohabitation figured out yet; last year the beans grew too poorly in the shade of the corn, while this year they outgrew the corn.
Passersby by want know how come we can grow tomatoes that are nearly 6 feet tall AND have tomatoes forming? I smile, shrug my shoulders….”We don’t try; it just magically happens!” (It’s the energy flowing in the CG vortex!) That said, it will be interesting to see how well fruit ripens “in the jungle.” Yet, we have our ways..
