Don’t know if this is going to be much help during Hurricane Bill. But I thought it was worth a shot.
Another baby squash. More hopefulness on the homestead.
First harvested ears from lefferts. On my way back to the studio
Another dork photo to show how high the corn has grown!
At last the arrival of the third sister! Crookneck Squash! A touch of hope after the tragedy last week.
The beans are speckling!
Back to the garden at lefferts. Poking around the stalks. Check this character out. Some of the silks never got pollinated. Such is life.
Aren’t you a funny looking thing? Not going to be able to feed my family with this! We tasted it raw. It was hard and tasted kind of flour-y
I’m not going to win any prize for this cob! But this is my first experimental ear of corn pulled from a stalk in my home garden plot. It’s probably a cross breed of Darwin John and Katie Wheeler because I planted both in my plot just to see how they grow.
Something’s definitely eating away at one of the squash plants. It seems to be a squash vine borer. I ended up pulling up the entire plant after reading that there was nothing really to do with a full on infestation. Perhaps I was a little rash? I felt a lot of remorse. It’s such a beautiful plant.
The mid-august garden.
These is the next door pumpkin patch that is trying to migrate into the three sister’s garden. These pumpkins were planted by Leah Gauthier as part of her wonderful “Sharecropper” project. Check it out http://leahgauthier.com/sharecropper/
