This week in the edible garden
by Rainbow Bobbins
Harvesting: Green beans, summer squash, herbs, kale, chard Planting: Nada Growing: tomatoes, green beans, beets, cucumber (tiny cukes this week – see above), zucchini, summer squash, pumpkin, chard, kale, grapes, blueberries, sweet peas, herbs of all sorts Gave up on: Nothing this week – the garden seems to be in a happy place. Above – Pumpkin! It is putting on rapid growth – I need to put some netting up before I lose it to crows. This week is also my first harvest of green beans.
Yes!!!! I see some reddening happening on that tomato! Speaking of which – the tomatoes are out of control but last night I checked out our friend, Sarah’s, tomato trellis system and I have some ideas for next year. I should have taken a photo – below is our tomato tangle. The scale is off but the plants on the right are nearing 7ft tall. One last pumpkin shot with my shoe for size reference.
