Due to an abundance of powdery mildew and other factors affecting the squash plants, they were promptly removed the other day with the help of Jude. Yeah, as soon as a plant is pulled, she grabs hold of it and runs out into the yard. Haha...Now, if I could just train her to carry it to the woods.. :)
Anyway, Trail of Tears beans (shared by granny), and also Red Cranberry beans (shared by Dan) were planted, and should start to emerge in the next week or so.
Photo below - since the pile of leaves were finally removed from the 4x9 box next to the woods, some Kentucky Wonder beans were planted in the vacant spot. Yeah, i'm going all-out with this late season bean planting - and have found the second half of summer to be the best time for them...
Photo below - all of the contents were added to the already-cooking 3 bins, and around 50 lbs. of UCG's thrown in, as well. At least a full bin of finished compost should come from these 3 later - which will be just right for filling the garden again next spring.
In other gardening news, the newly planted corn is tasseling at only 2 feet tall. That's probably not good, and just as insurance some squash seeds have been sown right in the center of each swc. We really don't need any more, but just couldn't think of anything better to plant.
Also, caterpillar eggs are in abundance on the tomato plants now, and using some aggressive insecticide is mandatory to keep tomatoes from becoming damaged. I found a very nice black from tula with a tomato fruitworm inside, and something has to be done about it...
Take care, and happy gardening
