I'm germinating 4 (8 actually), of each today. I've already grown them this year but my phone was broken at the time and I couldn't care less about pictures, but I'll make sure you see their progress. I should have a couple ladybug homes around the yard to help keep them here to deal with the aphids these will assuredly attract. Sikkim is my favorite to eat but Dragon's Egg tastes better in my opinion. I don't think I'll grow a green cucumber again unless to cross with unusual varieties that are just fantastic 💚 as you can see the seeds are from the good people at @bakercreekseeds
This would be the day I see a hornworm for the first time this year. I hung three immature tomatoes up to ripen because they were already showing severe stress from the rain, and this fiend saw an easy meal. I left the other three for it as well. No worries, we all gotta eat... Also it scared me just for 2 seconds 🤣
Today there was a funeral 😂 it's such a relief to be done with tomatoes... all but 4 🤷🏿♂️ They were doing too well, even with the rain, for me to cut them. I plan on getting a greenhouse but that's some months away. I think I'll begin germinating cucumbers today. I'll take a pic of the varieties to let you know, also because I'm bad with labels. 🤔 these aren't dwarf varieties. I intentionally kept them short so that I could effectively grow them in 3 gallon pots. Hopefully the rainy season doesn't go strong into October like last year.
While the summer crops are basking in the early summer heat, some of the leafy greens are not enthused. In fact, the mustard decided to bolt overnight! I certainly don't have the space or patience to let it go to seed so it is being evicted along with some bolting Beni Houshi mizuna. Gotta make room for something else! Maybe carrots?? Looks like we will be having a big stir-fry for dinner tonight!
It's nice to see branches that are filled with sweet cherries. This year it was a weird and wet spring when all the sweet cherries bloomed and I wasn't sure we will get any harvest from them since no pollinators were out but the wind did it's thing and we have cherries to enjoy.
Unsere Gurken mussten etwas länger warten bis der kleine Folientunnel fertig aufgebaut war 🥒 Wir hatten Sorge dass sie ihr Wachstum einstellen würden, wenn sie zu lange in den kleinen Jungpflanzentöpfen bleiben, doch alle Pflanzen haben überlebt und wachsen gut in ihrer neuen Umgebung weiter 🌱 Sie ranken nun an Schnüren bis zur Tunneldecke empor und lassen sich so einfach ernten. 📸 @brix_and_maas
Experiment** We are trying to get a Epipremnum pinnatum 'Cebu Blue' to fenestrate. It has climbed its cedar slat to the height of over 4 feet now and the leaves are becoming very large. We are anticipating the first signsanytime now.
I'm 5 ft 7 inches tall. And these heritage raspberry canes just topped my height. I had no idea they got so tall, did you? My golden raspberry maxes out at 4 ft. But apparently these babies just want to keep growing? 👀
The privilege of walking into #mygarden taking attendance and talking to hundreds of its residents, and of course in silence- and especially past 5:00 am gloomiest of the World News! #stayandwander#seekthesimplicity -📷
