Fenton Friday: Cucumber Babies

This week the rains stopped. I actually had to go over to the plot twice this week and water our newly planted tomato seedlings and the cucumber seed mounds. Cucumber seedlings promptly popped up on two out of the three mounds. That is a good sign!

I haven't had a chance to plant my peppers or other seeds yet. I am also holding off on my herbs as I'll bringing them all to the HERB TALKS and TASTINGS at the 14TH & KENNEDY FARMERS MARKET next weekend.

The lettuce made a comeback under the cover cloth, so I can cut at least one more salad bowl full from that before the 90+ degree days are due to hit next week.

This week we also visited the Koiner urban farm down the street and I saw that Charlie, at 98 years old, is far ahead of me as far as variety and season in his garden beds. His zinnias are already knee-high and the figs on his trees look close to harvest.

How is your vegetable 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 6th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
