We got another 1.25 inches of rain last night and this morning. The garden isn’t quite floating away yet, but I’m not going to complain.
The grapevines are budding and blooming. Of course, they waited until now so that there was a better chance of black rot infection! There’s not any disease on the leaves yet though, so maybe they’ll be fine.
Our potatoes and onions in the Family of 4 Garden are looking really healthy. The potatoes almost look too healthy… I don’t know if I’ve ever had potato plants get so big and leggy. Maybe it’s that they are in raised beds, so they seem taller than they really are.
The nasturtiums have been growing pretty quickly now that they are up. We got them planted a little bit too late, so I’m concerned that they won’t hang in long enough to bloom, once it gets hot. In the meantime, I’m going to be looking for some nasturtium recipes…
Have a great weekend! Don’t forget that the Master Gardeners are sponsoring a Garden Tour this weekend. For details, visit our website.
