Man, the garden is getting a good soaking every couple of days, and is really liking it! Especially the greens, because I just picked another 6 oz. of lettuce and spinach this evening. (Cool!)
I don't have any photos today, but that doesn't mean there isn't happenings going on. The cowpeas are sprouting after only a week from being planted, and will probably be thinned out a bit, after all of them emerge.
All of the tomatoes are looking well (except one), and I managed to pick another sucker from the healthy Cherokee Purple plant, and root it. As soon as the (almost daily) rainfall stops, copper fungicide will be applied to everything. Situations as this are a perfect for all types of fungal diseases to thrive, and I expect alot will show up. Better to be safe than sorry!
All of the melons have germinated, and I can't wait to start training them up the trellises in a couple weeks. Growing 7 different varieties is gonna be alot of fun!
Thanks to the rain, and much cooler temperatures - the broccoli has ceased it's recent issue of bolting. Whew...I think around 8 of the plants have already been pulled because of it. The cabbage section is really filling out well, and sure does look good from the road. I bet passersby think "good lord, look at what that retard has growing in that freaky garden!" Ha!
All of the pole beans are up, and should begin to latch onto the trellises in another week or two. Boy, this is gonna be alot of beans...hee hee.. Ya know....I think it's about time for another video! I'll try to get that done this weekend, if weather permits. That's about all that's going on around here for today, but the weekend is looking pretty busy!
Take care, and happy gardening!
