vines and peppers
just booming along...peppers are coming in even if they are a bit mud spattered from yesterday's downpour...no watering today...the garden is just fine water wise...there was no sign of beetles on the bean vines in the second photo...or any of the other trellises...still, i gave them another dousing with neem oil...there are growing number so beans and some should be harvested soon ( that is a gentle hint ) the cucumber vines are exploding and they have begun to produce ( fourth and fifth photos )...those will be ready soon and the vines are blooming away...fresh salad ingredients on the hoof...ellen's radishes are about ready while harold's peas are vining and will bloom shortly...down the beds broccoli is almost in season...there's kale too and the tomatoes are growing but nowhere near ripe...still the goods are coming along...and there were surprises for this gardener today...more on that soon enough...stop in when you get a minute...it's worth the time.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
