Fenton Friday: Peanut Party

Peanut Seedlings

This week at the community garden plot, we had blazing temperatures and then finally a good soaking rain last night. It came with some damaging winds in the area with many folks losing power last night, but the plot looks okay. 

The peanuts planted last week in a container are already germinated and growing by leaps and bounds. The cosmos and seedlings are all up as well.

The interns planted two kinds of marigold seeds by the peppers and tomatoes a few days ago, so I hope those all emerge soon.

Celosia reseeded itself where the potatoes are planted. I will leave them there for now.

The swiss chard looks ready for a first harvest soon and I still haven't gotten the okra seeds in. Maybe next week.

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.
