Fenton Friday: Baby Tomatoes

One small bonus to this very hot past week was that I have tomatoes forming already!

Thanks to another plot gardener, Beth, I also have Mouse Melon (aka Mexican Sour Gherkin) seeds planted now.

Today I put in a Pole Bean 'Seychelles,' which is a 2017 AAS Edible Winner. It seems like it will be very prolific.

When I get a spare five minutes, I need to pull out the Garlic and cure it -- it is looking past time for that really.

Everything else is coming along nicely. It is all I can do right now too keep things watered and alive. Weeding is a luxury that I will save for after we get some decent rain and cooler temps.

How is your edible garden growing this week?

About Fenton Friday: 
Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 5th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.)

I think my mouse melons came up. I can't tell them apart from the clover that keeps growing where I planted. Fingers crossed. I got lots of garlic to harvest, too! I wanted to put in winter squash where the garlic is. Do you think it's too late. And I don't have a starter. Trying to get some going from seed here on my deck, but so far, no sign the seed is going to deliver.
Not too late or winter squash (or any squash for that matter!) I have a Butternut Squash seedling I am about to put in myself.

Good luck on the Mouse Melon - we will have to keep comparing their progress.
