Our Sharecropper Rows are increasing almost daily. As we continue to sow seeds in the new rows, Carl tills more space for us.
I was there this morning to 'raise' a row for zucchini and hilled 17 Dundoo (green) Zucchini spaces and watered them in. I also finished sowing the Vernandon Filet Beans I started a couple of days ago, but ran out of seed and then it rained. It was a nice morning to finish up, overcast and cool enough to be comfortable working in the gardens.
I see that other crops have been sown as well. Among them cabbages, both red and green for a fall crop along with broccoli seed for a fall crop. Soleil (yellow) Summer Squash has also been sown.
Along with what's already been sown..... beets, beans, peas, winter squash, tomatoes and cucumbers, we're making inroads in getting our garden in full production. There's going to be watermelon and also Three Sisters, which is sweet corn, pole beans and squash sown in the same beds, each assisting the other in their growth.
I'm sure I'm leaving out something, but forgive me. I wrote things down and put them in my pocket, and when I got home, no list in my pocket. Checked all my other pockets. It must have fallen out along the way.
Anyway folks, you are doing a good job keeping your own rows watered and weeded. I noticed this as I was weeding my own rows. There's a 30% chance of more rain this afternoon and 40% tonite so you may not have to water your rows another day, unless you've just sown seeds.
Newly-sown seeds must be kept moist in order to germinate so keep watch on anything you've recently sown.
There are beautiful red flowers, annual Geraniums, in the greenhouse for sale at only $4. a pot. These are from Skillins and cost more than that for the church to buy, but Penecost Sunday has passed and they no longer need all the flowers so are willing to sell at a lower price.
You can pay Leigh when you see her.
