The veggies are doing great! Here’s a peek at what’s growing at our house:
Cocozelle summer squash from Botanical Interests. This was my first year growing these and they are absolutely delicious, with a nice nutty flavor.
Rolande filet bush beans from Renee’s Garden.
In the other side of the same planter box, Catalina baby leaf spinach and a Cherries Jubilee nasturtium from Renee’s Garden.
Early Yellow crookneck from Lake Valley.
Amish Paste tomatoes from Peaceful Valley.
An unknown heirloom from seeds I saved last year. A friend brought me half of a tomato and said, “This was fantastic–can you grow me one next year?” We’ll see how it goes.
Spaghetti squash, also saved from last year (and a marigold peeking out from underneath).
Volunteer watermelons sprouting from the compost. We’ll find out later this summer what variety they are.
Oodles more garlic and onions are drying in the garage. I just need to figure out what makes two onions that grow side-by-side in the same soil come out so completely different:
Looks like I need to do more research on onion farming…anybody have any ideas?
