The cucumbers, blackberries, and the 'Sungold' tomato are all setting fruit. As a matter of fact, the cucumbers seems to be set with all female flowers! I hope somebody has a vine nearby with male ones. The beans are sending out lots of flowers themselves, so am hoping they'll start producing purple pods soon too,
I was able to start cutting bouquets from the celosia and zinnia. The yarrow is done and needs to be cut back.We are gleaning for a harvest share group this weekend, so I plan to cut a bunch of swiss chard for that.
What is growing in your edible garden?
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 in zone 7 Mid-Atlantic MD/DC border. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 8th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
