It poured here, ending the need to water every day for a while. It is getting to be the end of the lettuce, dark green but a bit tough and bitter. Picked a double handful of snowPeas while the coffee was brewing. Only a couple raspberries.
Only minutes from Fran's Victory Garden to the fridge. Fran and I went out to inspect the crops. We picked snow peas and a cabbage. It is distressing how many layers of leaves have to be removed before the cabbage is ready for shredding. Fran also cooked up some of the beets. Love beets.
Today I plant fennel. I have got to get pics.
I was picking snowpeas this morning while the coffee was brewing. Have to pick them everyday. Finally got the fennel in yesterday, planted some basil at the same time.
Pavers for the paths were delivered Sunday Morning, don't people go to church anymore?
I will get a smart phone this wkend. Pics soon.
Today I'll harvest the rest of the beets, good year. Picking snow peas, cherry tomatoes from the Topsy Turvy on the deck, lettuce, cabbage, and an occasional raspberry from this years planting.
After I clean up the beet "field" I will plant Florence Fennel. Fran and I are just discovering fennel. The seed pack says it gets 3 feet, and to plant a foot apart. I am excited!
I promise pics.
I have just released 1500 LadyBugs into Frans Victory Garden. How cool is that? It is not like I'm all organic, it is because I am too lazy to spray. I got them thru Amazon from Hirt's Garden.
First was the Radishes. I am getting tired of radishes. Lettuce for weeks now and beets for the last several weeks. All kinds of stuff growing, more later...
I haven't told about this year's garden
