There are zucchini beginning to grow. This is a heritage variety in my seed saving program called Tiger Zucchini. These plants are in John’s garden, he has a cage like cover on them because Mr Flowers LOVES to eat Zuchinni flowers.
LuLu the oldest ginger cat.
In 24 hours all the fields surrounding us were sprayed with the highly potent horticulture strength round up, (much, much stronger than what you can buy at the store), then tilled and sown in field corn or maize. It all happened so fast I did not even have time to get my clothes off the line. They all had to be rewashed.
Hopefully none of my vegetables (or hay fields) were sprayed off with the wind creating drift. But I think we have survived another year.
I sowed the third row of beans yesterday. My biggest seller at the moment is asparagus. The rhubarb is finished. You can only cut about a third of the rhubarb plant per season. I will be planting more rhubarb soon – I have put out the call to local gardeners. I love the old varieties and there is a chef in the city who will take all I can grow.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Weather Forecast: Stunning. Perfect gardening weather.
