Or maybe a bit higher. I’ve really seen a lot of change in the corn this last week. The good day corn, as you can see, is getting going. The bad day corn is trying. Real hard. And I talk sweet to both rows of corn. Oh, and for those of you who asked, the variety of corn is Tipper’s and her family’s favorite, Silver Queen, a white corn that’s a sweet corn.
The black eyed peas are going nuts…
The broccoli is identifiable even if it's a little sick looking. This is the only plant of six that got anywhere near to being something someone could recognize.
Half the pole green beans are in trouble…
The other half of ‘em are going great guns.
The bush beans are going to the great bush bean garden in the sky tomorrow. No, that’s not quite right. They have gone more than 7/8’s of the way already. I’m going to put them out of their misery tomorrow and pull them up and take them to the compost pile. They looked worse than the poopy looking pole beans. I didn’t want to embarrass them by taking their picture in their last gasps of life. So you’ll have to take my word for it. There is no way to save them.
Zuccs are still coming on.
And the crook neck yellow squash is continuing to put forth squashlets.
And I’m going to have to figure out when to harvest the cabbage. Trust me, I will wash each cabbage leaf before I eat it because it got dosed with the squash bug-potato bug powder, too. According to the instructions you can powder all the veggies little butts until two days before you plan to harvest them, but I’m not putting any more insecticide on anything than I feel I really need to… I haven’t seen any sign of either bug so I haven’t dosed them again.
So that’s my Sunday stroll through the vegetable garden. I’m working on a flower show for your perusal in the next day or two. Stay tuned and we will tip-toe not through the tulips, it’s too far into the summer for that, but I will take you for a walk-about around the flowers that are going and growing now.
