The ridiculous spring winds that ravished the first batch of seedlings seem to be calming as Summer arrives… and that would be tomorrow. The second planting is very hardy, blooming, and in some cases, fruiting. Adequate rain and heat have actually made for a nice final few weeks of Spring. Here’s a peek…
The end of an otherwise cloudy day on “Juneteenth”
The first Opalkas, now about 1″ long.
Not entirely convinced this is a “dwarf” variety of gray peas.
Kind of a sad little Ozark crop this year, but they had a rough spring.
Cilantro from seed in a matter of weeks. I hereby endorse this as another wind-friendly crop that can endure abuse.
The cuke, zucchini and squash plants have been nothing to write home about, but all tomatoes (Stupice, Kellogg’s Breakfast and Opalka) are now thick stemmed and blooming.
