I just finished ordering our late summer/ fall seeds.
two types of small pumpkins to grow on the trellis and around the fence.
two types lettuce
kale and a few varieties of carrots.
My beets didn’t do very well, i definitely think the soil was sufficient; tilled and deep enough, perhaps i planted them too close together. they’re all slightly larger than golf balls.
we may end up with two heads of cabbage after this is all over- out of 6.
our okra’s height growth has stunted and i’m happy i planted three more 2 months later, hopefully they’ll have more success. i don’t have enough right now to pickle.
we’ve got our second round of beans planted, and i’ll be putting some more in this week.
so far they have been my favorite but they only put out beans for two weeks.
tomatoes are going crazy and luckily the second round of cucumbers aren’t far behind, we have about 5 babies right now.
our one Ichiban eggplant has produced 14 long skinny delicious plants so far. i think once i pick the ones from this last growth it’ll slow down and only produce a few more through the fall.
still trying to figure out where to source the brussel sprouts from- i’ve read that i shouldn’t plant those from seed but i’ve never seen baby brussel sprout plants!
we should have planted asparagus and artichokes-that way maybe next year we’d actually have some. i guess we’d need a second garden plot for just those two.
greg and i are so curious about our little sweet potatoes, i’m worried the zucchini plants are smothering them – i thought our zucchini would be finished around now, not just starting and i’d be pulling them up to plant lettuce but instead they’re huge and growing over half my sweet potatoes. i’m trying to train the vines to grow away from the zucchini in order to get more light. fingers crossed.
i road a beach cruiser, i skated, i ate rum soaked pineapple on a mountain top. it rained, we watched the first three terminator movies, i finally found some articles in The New Kings of Non Fiction that i really enjoyed; Amoung the Thugs- Bill Buford and Tales of the Tyrant – Mark Bowden. made more smoothies, ate amazing food, took the time to peel each chick pea for the hummus, realized i don’t want to dry clean for the rest of my life – which turns my thoughts frantic because i can’t figure out what i actually want to do. had adventures on the side of the highway and with tow truck drivers who were dozing off while driving us back to wilmington, more adventures on top of sand hills with 360 views of Wilmington’s fire works, fire ants attacked, repaired a rain gutter, repaired a busted water pipe after an insane storm. loved on my garden a little. made future plans. organized photos from 2006 in to what will become my first printed photo book.
mountains, whiskey wednesday at tate’s, silver moon with the guys, beach, ocean, sun burn, babies, food, parking tickets, mercedes dealerships with fancy flying cars. celebrating our 7th year together.
i’m ready for the next vacation. hawaii or texas. fingers crossed they happen.
