The tiny seedlings in the fifth planting of carrots have a bit of a struggle ahead of them, as the temperature reached 99F today. They're coming up a bit spotty, but not bad at all considering the weather. It looks smaller, but this is a 1' wide by 8' long row, so there are quite a few carrots, on 2" spacing, in this planting.
I was expecting this Bush Champion variety of slicing cucumber to get as tall and sprawling as the Spacemaster I usually plant, but so far it's much more compact.
Although it's very late this year, it's finally blooming. I have no idea what is eating the blossoms, but something took a couple of good bites.
The pickling cucumbers are way behind, as the seeds I had saved from last year proved to be not viable, so I had to buy new seeds and try again. I'd better give these a dose of fish emulsion, they're looking a bit yellow.
Weeds and Bermuda grass are creeping into the garden from the neighbor's yard. I had to move all my potted cucumbers away from this fence, so that I can try to keep the weeds from completely invading my space.
I planted two yellow crookneck squash seeds in the compost pile. One has decided to sprout. There should be plenty of time for it to grow and produce. I hope.
This Matt's Wild Cherry tomato plant grew 11" in four days. It has a foot to go before it reaches the patio roof. It has fruit, but none near ripening.
The Sunsugar has given me two little golden globes of goodness, and a third will be consumed tomorrow. The first two were picked a bit early, as I was impatient to try them, so I'm giving this little beauty one more day, then it's mine, all mine!
The Walla Walla Sweet onions had to be scrunched together at one end of the drying line, as they were falling on the concrete floor as the tops dried. Now they can fall into a nice soft pile of compost. I've already taken nearly 8 pounds of dry ones inside in the past two days.
Quite a few remain in the garden. Many are much larger than the ones that have already been harvested, probably 10-12 ounces.......or maybe even heavier!
