After we wrote our kinderGARDEN post on Sunday, we walked to the mailbox and discovered that the Saturday mail had brought us our seeds! Matthew thought we should plant right away, so we did. We now have 2 varieties of zucchini up 1 bush, 1 Italian Ribbed, 2 Ronde De Nice summer squash, 1 Jack Be Little, 4 pattypan squash, and 7 luffa plants! We replanted green beans for the 4th time and have 1 of the new ones coming up.
Things aren't looking so good in the sunflower world. 4 have bit the dust this week. The one above must have been eaten by a rabbit, the funny stalk one died, and another looked like it was snapped by the wind today.
Using the new watering can. I have to ask Matthew for permission to use it has he has claimed it as his.
Matthew was really scared of Granddaddy Longlegs, until we read about them and learned they eat some very nasty bugs. Now Matthew says, "Granddaddy's to the rescue!" Go eat some nasty bugs!
Everyone is interested in the rat-tail radishes. They are an asian variety that is supposed to be better at handling the heat than the traditional radish. Supposedly they set the radish above ground. In this picture, I believe is the beginning of our rat tail radishes growing.
Matthew pulled a carrot to see if it had become a mutant carrot yet. We discovered it wasn't really much of anything yet.
Another of the many visitors to the garden this week.
We found another strawberry by the sidewalk and it was heavenly!
The wind took out some beans, sigh.
Matthew's sunflowers have really grown this week. They are 32". That's 12 1/2" growth this week.
Matthew's plot really makes me happy. It's such a full cheerful spot. He lost a petunia, so we planted some of my new marigolds in it's place.
These carrots really need thinned...
