Hot Fun in the Summertime
It's been hot here. Hotter than usual for this time of year. The heat comes on like a blanket. It makes me want to eat watermelons and tomato sandwiches. I'm behind on summer planting and the compost is running out. Ahhhh!!! But it will be ok. This week I will finish the summer planting. Here's what I have left to plant.....Musquee De Provence pumpkins, Potimarron and Melonette de Vendee winter squash, Boule D'Or melons, and Cannelini beans. Tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, watermelons, peppers, and eggplant are all doing well. The rows are 150ft. long. The garlic is totally dry now. It cured in the barn and is now ready to sell. The wild blackberries are starting to come on now. Last Thursday I picked four pints worth. Mulching like crazy.
