When I walk out of the front door I remember the seedlings need to be transplanted....
Pick the harvest. This cabbage has been needing picking, and with the warm weather approaching this weekend, I better go ahead and bring it in. There's a basket full of Asian red lettuce in the back as well as the reseeded volunteer head of lettuce from last year in the front, a large Dutch Wakefield cabbage, Daikon radishes (They get much bigger than these. My sister Terri picked a large one from her garden thinking it was a white carrot and got a very spicy surprise when she chomped down.), and some thinned baby turnips. Everything is beautiful without hardly the tiniest bug bite on them. I'm so so pleased. Maybe next year will be different, but this year's just delightful.
This is the trellis Byron made for my blackberries. He cut down some small trees to use as posts and stakes. The wire is fencing wire. Hopefully it will last a very long time. There are two wire stretched across the length. I only planted three plants, but I plan on rooting the longer canes that develop.
Now here are the potato towers. Not sure how this is going to turn out, but I will report. They are filled with leaves, grass clippings, and compost. The potatoes are planted in this mix. As the potatoes grow, you add more compost leaves and clippings. When the potatoes are ready, you open up the tower and remove the potatoes. As leftovers, you have wonderful compost to boot. One video said you can harvest 10 to 20 pounds of potatoes per tower. I plan on having 10 towers if I'm successful.
After harvesting all those nutritious yummy veggies, I had to get the laundry out to dry. Can't have heaps of laundry laying around the kitchen with company coming to visit!
Traipsing my way to the back door with empty laundry basket on my hip, I noticed someone keeping a careful eye on me.
