Gardening Week Ten
The first harvest finally made it’s way on to the table this week! A couple of huge cucumbers and a serrano pepper, sliced and tossed with a little oil and vinegar, were delicious. Zucchini is on the menu this week, along with more cucumbers.
Two new rosemary plants are doing well. The others herbs are coming back or holding their own.
There are about a zillion squashes, almost big enough to pick.
A couple of zucchinis are already HUGE.
I’ve been watching this cucumber grow by what seems like an inch a day and then I discovered another one almost as big that had been hiding.
Mildew or something is creeping into the cucumbers and zucchini. I’ve read that milk works to kill mildew? I’ve also read that a mixture of baking soda and soap works. One or the other is getting sprayed today.
The bell peppers are coming along nicely.
And so are the serranos.
There’ll be at least a handful of okra ready to pick this week.
And LOOK, a tomato! The plants are growing and the blossoms are finally turning into fruit.
Hard to believe it’s only been seven weeks since I put in the first tiny seedlings.
