I realize that this is my fourth post this weekend! I seem to have a lot to say so far this month, in contrast to last month when I was not very inspired. So, at risk of boring my loyal readers, here is a garden update.
I have pulled all the zucchini and cucumber plants after getting many pounds of both. I am afraid they were terriby infested with aphids because I wasn't spraying them as often as I should have with the soapy water mixture.
I am sorry to see them go, but I am also grateful for such a bountiful harvest. Now I have more space again, although I haven't really thought about what I will plant next.
The Nasturtiums are coming along nicely. I can't wait for them to flower.
The Kale, Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Broccoli are all doing well.
I have a very small head of broccoli forming on one plant.
The snow pea plants are also growing, although they have had some aphid activity recently so I have been watching them closely, and spraying my organic soapy pest control regularly. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them!
This bed is rather crowded with a variety of Lettuce, Leeks, more Cabbage, Spinach, Cilantro, and Dill. I see some plant thinning in my future.
And here is the last of the Rapini which has been delicious, the first of the Kale, and some Parsley that I harvested on Friday.
Now I am off to find something fun to do with the girls. I hope you are all having a fun weekend too.
