Due to the herbicide issues we discussed last Friday, there isn’t a whole lot new to show. I did find a few interesting things around the garden though.
The Red Aztec Spinach (Huauzontle) is also looking pretty good. It has suffered a little insect feeding damage, but not too much. Contrary to what you might think on first glance, it is NOT Lambsquarter. A cousin, yes. The actual weed, no.
The squash in the Family of 4 garden are looking really good, although the beans that you can just barely see on the right are still struggling. I think we’re all crossing our fingers and hoping that the squash vine borers won’t find us this year, since we have so much squash planted.
Our hanging basket tomatoes have some fruit set. Since two of the three varieties are ‘Red Rambling Stripe’ and ‘Gold Rambling Stripe,’ they are showing a really nice green-on-green stripe right now. I know…I should go out and get a picture, but I’ve got a lot of other things to get done this morning. I promise I’ll share one sometime next week!
Have a great weekend!
