As we prepare to take off for a few days camping on the coast of Maine, we must make sure the garden is fit to survive a week's neglect. It was hot at the beach farm yesterday, the wind from the west, and had only an hour to make sure the irrigation was still in good order, the fruit picked, biggest weeds pulled.
Good luck fall broccoli and cauliflower, lettuce and fennel seedlings. Placed at an intersection of several irrigation sprayers, these will need to toughen up while we are away.
Indigo Rose they call it. Lots of them, none near ripe.
These are called Speckled Roman, but I would've called them Jupiter.
Rabbit bites. The rabbit like the green bean tops, but not the beans? Excellent.
Too many cukes on the dancefloor. When we get back I will need to thin these.
Visited by several swallowtails now. They love fennel.
A minor haul, which is good, because these don't travel. Gave most away.
Summer travels in a paper bag. A hot car, sun light, and a plastic bag are deadly.
