Welcome, Trish - and thanks for following my blog!
Umm...yeah....i'm trying to control my excitement but it's no use. Finally!!!! Oh god, i've finally got something to show since the onions a while back. Whew......These straight eight cucumbers couldn't wait any longer, so I just had to pick them. Some will likely make their way to some of my friends at work, because we don't eat many around my house - just make pickles with them. I'll only make whole dill pickles this year - as we still have some bread and butter pickles leftover from last year. Anyway, these babies came from the vines growing in the 34 gallon swc.
If you'd like to share your harvest for the week, visit Daphne's Dandelions to take part in the festivities - and also see what everyone else is harvesting.
In other news, it was extremely hot over the weekend, and working on the flowerbed was almost unbearable. There's a reason I don't take on summer projects - it's just too dang hot! However, since the flowerbed is almost complete, i'll go ahead and finish it. My next project will begin sometime in early October, which will be much better for working outside. I'm thinking a nice ramp for my parents will be next.
A quick early morning survey of the garden revealed that the muscadine grapes will produce the bumper crop we've been waiting for. More on that in another post....
I've got several posts coming up with all kinds of stuff, and even have a couple of videos about my trellises and rooting tomato suckers. I hope you like them!
Take care, and happy gardening!
