The second round of raspberries will be ready soon! All of my raspberry plants (both red and gold) fruit twice a year. Binny was thrilled when she learned this little bit of information.
The second round of radishes I planted a few weeks ago are now ready. I may even have time for one more crop of those if I get out there and plant them this week.
The beans were the big producer this week and are still climbing very nicely up the sunflower stalks. I'm wondering how tall the beans will climb.
The sunflowers are all taller than me already!
Binny loves to help in the garden especially when I let her use a sharp knife to cut the veggies off the plants.
She also likes to pull the root vegetables. It's hard to convince her to leave some of the onions in the ground when she can see them sticking up through the dirt. Way too tempting for a young gardener.
These little shits...are taking over parts of all three garden sections. I guess it's a good year for winter squash.
My peppers must have read last week's blog post about how they refuse to turn red.
I went out to pick veggies last night after dinner hoping that it would be a bit cooler, but it wasn't, and the mosquitoes were TERRIBLE once again even after I coated myself in bug spray. By the time I finished picking, it was dark and the constant bug swatting and scratching (yes, I'm a scratcher) was getting to be unbearable. I don't think I could have piled one more bean on top anyway.
Today I blanched and froze a quart bag of carrots (from my father-in-law's garden) and a gallon freezer bag full of beans. I still have broccoli to process that I've been collecting over the past week and I'm thinking I'll use it to make broccoli cheese soup. But again, this is not what I would consider soup weather. I just can't get in the mood.
So what is ready in your garden this week?
Now for all you gardeners out there who wish to participate, either leave a comment on what's growing in your yard, or post a Monday Garden Club update on your blog. Don't forget to drop your link in the comments and I'll add it to this post.
