My garden is largely planted now for summer. All but the really late things–those being peppers and eggplant–are in.
I have okra planted in back, marigold seeds planted between the okra and where the eggplant will go; two varieties of pole beans in the enclosure, cucumber plants, several varieties of zucchini and summer squash; tomatoes from seedlings I grew; beets, if the rabbit doesn’t get them; carrots; broccoli raab; radishes, and several varieties of lettuce.
In fact this week I am in fresh lettuce and spinach, so salad days. Along with some baby carrots and radishes, I’m set for some light meals.
I also have two kinds of kale, chard, cutting celery, and celery planted, but I put those seeds in a couple weeks ago. Things seem to be growing and sprouting, and if predictions are true, I will need to get out more summery clothes and get to the garden to water more often this week.
I’ve been in my kitchen off and on this weekend and noticed a crow out the window. I think they’re lovely birds (if they aren’t ripping into my trash).
This one is obviously trying to build a nest. It grabs the vine tendrils and tugs and tugs, trying to detach them.
I’ve almost gone outside a few times to snip a few off for it, but that would be interfering with nature, wouldn’t it?
