Back to the Garden
We haven’t been in the garden lately. I’ve been blessed with rain and extra hands but I’ve missed visiting on a daily, sometimes twice daily basis.
Here is what has been going on while I was away.
I discovered that not all of my beans died and they have even begun to flower.
I have two different varieties of corn that are doing well. The one above is an heirloom sweet corn called Clem Bennet. Below is a Blue Pop Popcorn Variety.
I even spotted a couple ears beginning to bulge and show silks!
I love how the cucumber flowers have mini cucumbers sneaking up behind them on the stem.
But even better than that is a cucumber ready for one of my Thinglets to pick for tonight’s salad!
Eggplant flowers are amazingly pretty and I have two varieties to pick from. I can’t wait to make Barbequey Ratatouille with my garden fresh eggplant.
This jalapeno was so well disguised beneith the dark similiarly shaped leaves I didn’t even spot it until it was near seven inches long!
Below my re purposed crib rails protect the lettuce from the hot sun and provide a trellis for the cucumbers to climb.
