I just returned home, and Mickey just left for NY. For a while we were both in flight today but on different planes going in different directions.
I will be home through next Tuesday, June 24th. Then I'll go to NY. Mickey and I will return home on July 1st.
Since Mickey is taking a break from dutifully feeding her husband and because I am not much of a cook, there will be plenty of produce to harvest this week.
Please understand that harvesting is a necessary part of maintaining a healthy garden. If we don't continue removing mature vegetables, the old vegetables easily get confused with the newly maturing ones. We'd like to keep everything fresh. So, please do not be shy about using what becomes available. Otherwise it will be harvested and taken 50 feet to the compost pile.
I've not been out in the garden for several days, but I suspect we are getting peas, lettuce, green onions, beets, cabbage, broccoli raab, spinach, and strawberries.
Last weekend we quickly weeded and mulched the potatoes and green beans, tried to salvage a couple of the water logged tomato plants, planted more peppers, cleaned off the 1st spinach bed, etc. We need to plant some squash, tomatilloes, and cilantro soon and replant a few other things. Should be a good weekend for all this.
