The vegetable garden continues to putter along. Our other projects and day jobs are keeping us from giving it much attention, and it shows. It needs a good weeding, the tomatoes should be topped, and the dead cukes and pumpkin plants need to go away. The summer was very dry, but in the last 2 weeks we’ve had quite a bit of rain, and are getting more tonight. I had given up on the summer squash, but with the rain we’ve had a flush of new blossoms and some new fruit forming. The yellow crookneck are OP, and quite prolific, but the taste just does not compare to the patty pans, especially the Flying Saucers.
The kale is coming along, I’ve got lettuce and green sprouting in the hoophouse, and two more tomato plants in their which have some ripening fruit, too. The beans and peas are growing albeit slowly. At least the peas, planted in late July, have some fruit setting. Warmer weather is predicted for the weekend, I’m hoping we get it.
