Just out checkin' the garden today , and we have green beans <kentucky
wonder , pole> ready to pick . I've already picked a nice zucchini and one
summer squash , the green onions are ready , and this morning I picked a
quart of wild blackberries . When the tomatoes start to ripen , we'll be
buried ... and that's only a matter of a few days now .
All my work the last few months is coming to fruition ... pun intended .
Harvested my soft-neck garlic a little early, July 5, but they cleaned up
real nice (if a bit small, no surprise hard winter and delayed spring).
Last year I was a bit late, the weather had been wet, and the bulbs
turned out ugly and they weren't 'well wrapped' so I had more than the
normal loss during storage.
May have trouble with the hard necks. It's been thundering the last two
days, and I have not been doing much outdoors. We shall see.
The winter squash is starting to run and the first sweet corn is showing
silks and the tassels have popped up.
I've been wondering , just when is the "right" time to plant garlic ? I
bought a large package of the stuff we like from WM , with the intent to
plant some this summer , I just ain't sure when to plant .
I just planted about a hundred more green onions , they grow well here and
we like 'em .
I've been out in the garden all morning . We've got pumpkins , acorn and
early summer squashes , zucchini , and cucumbers all on the vines now . Some
of the tomatoes are getting larger than baseballs , and the green beans have
started producing . The 14 strawberries <Ozark Beauty IIRC> I planted early
are now more like 50 plants , runnin' all over . I've already harvested
BokChoi seed for a late summer planting , and the Romaine,Iceberg , and
spinach have all bolted - will be saving seed from all of them . Oh , and
the Cayennes are loaded with blossoms and fruit , eggplants are blooming ,
and the okra has decided to jump right up and get growin' now too .
The wife's gonna have some canning to do ...
Thank you . It looks like we'll eat this bag and I'll get another come
planting time . Garlic is one of <choose deity>'s greatest gifts to mankind
I just used a few cloves to make some garlic oil to sear the pork steaks
and squash parmesan in before going in the oven to finish .
