I'm still waiting for armfuls of summer bounty--I think there's much for me to learn about gardening before I get to the point where I can't carry my daily harvest in one trip. One lesson I have already learned, however, is to get rid of the plants you aren't happy with. I ripped out the beans, corn, and more of the pole beans at my Newark Street Community Garden plot a week or so ago. I sowed some parsnip, dill, beet, cilantro, carrot, and daikon radish in their place--my first attempts at fall crops! Some of them have already germinated.
Right now, I'm mostly waiting for things to ripen and trying to avoid looking the weeds in the eye--if you acknowledge them, then you have to bend over and pull them out.
gorgeous flowers. He's growing on the west side of my trellis arch tunnel, with the jicama between him and my other Passiflora and right next to my 'Sugar Pie' pumpkin on his other side.
I have to say, I love gourds of all kinds. I'm just hoping I get more of them than I have tomatoes this year. 'Sungold' will make a return next year, but I have no idea what slicing, canning, or baking tomatoes I'll grow next year!
