Today, I spent the morning in the vegetable garden. I planted the shallots - next year I won't order any since I really have more than enough to set aside to plant. My garden neighbor Marina wants some so I will give her some shallots to plant the next time I see her.
Last week I dug out paths to make the beds more raised. This week, I put wood chips on the paths and then took my little compost sifter and worked over some beds. There are so many rocks that this year I vowed to do something about it. The task is daunting but I figure slow and steady will get the job done.
Here are a few things that were picked today
The last two squash. The squirrels were eating them and they really weren't ready to pick yet but I did. I cut them up to steam the pieces and the little one just wasn't worth it. Into the compost it will go.
Mixed greens - radicchio, mizuna, lettuce, mustard and arugula
The cherry tomatoes are still producing!
A few pictures from the front yard.
Aster - the last flower to bloom. The blooms just started yesterday
The roses are hanging on
