No narrative. No cute catch-phrases. No super fantabulous photos. Just a sampling of what's doing well in the garden at the moment, which is just about everything except for the heritage beans that some wiley little beast has eaten.
The sputnik on our sputnik plant is starting to form. We're growing them interspersed with beets. They seem to love each other and there's no wasted space.
If you look closely, you'll notice a bloom and the beginnings of a teeny tiny eggplant in the picture. I cannot wait to eat fresh, grilled eggplant with ricotta cheese. I planted this one! We were afraid for it for the first couple of weeks but then it got hot and rained and now the eggplants are taking off.
And, in the spirit of eating offspring, here's the top of a bean plant in my neighbor's garden. He's out ot town for six weeks and has therefore given us permission to devour things as the ripen. His zucchini are just about ready and his beans are covered with blossoms. Offspring soon! Yeah!
Not pictured: The first blossoms on one of our tomato plants. I cannot wait to eat fresh tomatoes, even though Ptichka and I lived on BLTs during the lockout last year.
There's nothing below the fold.
