Thank-you, Alberto, for dropping a whole lotta rain. From 5/29 to 6/3 the plants jumped from…well, look!
The edible garden is earning its keep, scoring a First with a lovely Better Belle followed closely by 3! Big Berthas. A dozen tomatoes are on the Better Boys and Celebrity. The cherry tomatoes are blooming all over the place. I’m especially proud of the zucchini and yellow squash. I’ve had so many Fails with them in the recent past. When we lived over on Harmon Ct. they grew like crazy, and I’ve stubbornly persisted in trying to replicate those years. It looks like this might be My Year with the Squash. I don’t want to jinx myself, though, and rile up the squash bugs that are just looking around for a cocky gardener to bring down.
It really was a Whole Lotta Rain, possibly too much for some of my containers, so I’ve moved stuff around in my usual OCD manner. I’m still not done….Will I ever be? Do I want to be?
We are taking a break and heading up to camp at Harmonie SP for a couple of days. I’m ready to cook some foil meals, hike some easy trails, soak my clothing in Off!, and sit and stare at the campfire…
