As I prepared this blog post I looked back at my previous garden updates. Things have really changed from those early posts about seed starters, to progress reports from May and early June. The progress is startling. We have started to harvest not only lettuce and chard, but also crookneck squash zucchini, carrots, spring onions, peppers and cucumbers. I didn’t really expect such quick results (though it sure seemed like it was taking forever a month ago).
There are still some questions remaining, like:
- why has the basil plant turned yellow and lost leaves?
- How long does it really take for a tomato to ripen?
- What am I going to do with all this squash? and cucumbers?
Will have to answer these questions in another update sometime down the road because for now I just don’t know the answer.
