Well, I replaced one of the stolen cameras with a small camera that will take semi decent pictures. That should make this week and future weeks' posts "prettier" if nothing else. Daphne has a lot more harvest to look at.
Granny dared me and I took the challenge.
Three of the 5 corn that I can harvest. As you can see, much less impressive than Granny's corn harvest. I recently learned that every bud on the corn flower is the pollinator life line to the kernels in the corn. There were a lot of pollinator bees on those flowers so I am not sure why the corn looks so…. I do not think I will try corn again unless I can pick a different spot for them.
On some of the other fronts, Tomatoes have been rolling in by the bowl fulls. I weighed my Sunday harvest and it came out close to 10lbs for that day alone. It looks like I will have another week of this kind of harvest every two days and then I think there may be a hiatus. The plants have some small tomatoes on them but I am hoping there will be more flowers and fruit set with slightly cooler weather.
Harvested some pepper.
Beans are doing poorly but the plant has gone wild. i am not sure if I would find a bean if it was in there. Robin is having the same problem and we think it was the excessive heat. Oh well. I am beginning to get okra on a regular basis and that is fun. The flowers are so beautiful.
The zucchini squash plant that was giving me a a squash every other day has stopped producing and the SVB does not seem to have stunted the plant growth. Maybe I should pull it out.
I am looking forward to being able to post some other stuff with the new insta-camera.
