Fenton Friday: Tomatoes and Cucumbers In, Peas and Radishes Out

This week the new interns chose their veggie projects for the summer. Rosie chose three cucumber varieties to grow from seed and Racquel has six different tomato plants to focus on. Those all got planted after we cleared out the rain-exasperated weeds that sprung in the plot over the last few weeks.

The peas and radish are officially kaput. I picked the last of the "June-bearing" strawberries and the cilantro has all bolted.

Next week, I'll be clearing out more space for the peppers, watermelon, green beans, and okra. I'll also be going through my seed supplies to see what else I want to start at this point.

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.
