|Not a veggie, but I just love the lupin-like blooms|
I haven't actually been up to the garden in about 3 days, and it amazes me how some plants embrace the rain - greens, tomatoes, perennials, pole beans.. while others (the above-mentioned basil and peppers) languish.
But in my neglect of the garden, I have made a few boo boo's and the slugs have gone crazy in the new carrot patch.. check out my pole bean blunder below! Happily, the chickpeas are thriving (knock on wood)..
|Chickpeas - putting on new growth even with NO|
|Hark! Is that a chickpea flower I see?? Plants|
are about 1-foot tall and well branched. Only
about 20 plants (from 24 seeds in the packet)
Mental note: next year order 2 packets
|Whoa - potato flowers! Does that mean I should|
dig for some baby spuds?? Yum!
|My giant kossak kohrabi is getting big! The|
bulbing stem is about 3 inches across now.
|Lovely lettuce.. more salad tonight.|
|Hmmm.. can you see the tiny half-eaten|
stub of a carrot plant in the middle??
darn slugs!! must stick more seed in.
And thin the remaining carrots.
