Fenton Friday: Summer Begins
This week we managed to plant eight tomatoes (‘Firefly’, ‘Torch’, “White’, ‘Celebrity’, ‘White Currant’, ‘Rutgers’, ‘Sungold’, and ‘SunSugar.’) and five kinds of Basil, including Holy Basil (forgot to jot down the rest of their names). We also planted three Calendulas and a few trial Marigolds.
I soaked some ‘Red Burgundy’ Okra seeds and planted three seeds in each of three different holes. We’ll see if they all come up.
I still have a cover cloth over the lettuces, though most have bolted by names, and the brassicas. Shockingly, I can see a cauliflower head forming – I might have something decent from those yet.
The peas are done and just a few strawberries are left. I let the asparagus go a few weeks back and it is already several feet tall.
I want to get some beans and melons in next week. We’ll see if that happens.
