First of the Autumn Cabbages from the Tunnel. I harvested the biggest cabbage and was proudly showing it off to The Neighbour Lady, I handed it to her to admire, she said "Thank You" and started walking away with it. I panicked and said I was just showing it to you, she looked so disappointed, I gifted it to her. Luckily there was another large cabbage ready for the Stuffed Cabbages Fran had planned. Everybody was happy.
I picked the first Zucchini and the first Cucumber. Harvested the remainder of the beets. Also harvested the cabbages.
Getting ready for the fall Cabbages. The seeds have germinated and I will move them to the planting trays. After the seedlings poke thru the potting soil and are looking sturdy, I will put the the trays out under the tunnels before transplanting. Looking to plant 10 cabbages.
Still picking a half dozen Raspberries a day, tasty. I will be pruning the raspberry plants July 1st, saw some very good pruning videos on youtube.com, I liked the Green Garden Guy.
Each year is a battle with the cabbage worm and butterfly. It is enough that I have thought at times to give up on cabbages and caulis. This year I am fighting back with the Tierra Garden 50-5030 Haxnicks Easy Micromesh Tunnel, Giant. I have the package here open, looks simple enough. Comes in a nice reusable bag for winter storage. It is funny tho, where tunnels are being discussed no one says when to deploy the tunnel. Well I choose today, May 22 is the proper day to set up the tunnel, right after weeding.
That went easy, just pull out of the bag, stretch it out and stick it in the ground. It would extend twice as far as I have stretched it out, next year I will change the plan to best utilize the capabilities of the tunnel.
