We won’t be at the market this week. The veggies need a little time to recuperate from the heat and home and family needs a little TLC.
The garden is in one of those between-times. Summer heat takes a toll on tomatoes and green beans about now – but they’ll be back once the heat lets up. Our local bunnies have taken more than their share of the edamame soybeans – we are making efforts to negotiate a truce, but so far the bunnies are not cooperating. We’ll re-plant inside the new bunny-fence and hope for a late summer crop.
Not everything is hurting: The peppers and okra, Red Ripper peas and melons – are all doing just fine.
Pumpkins, sweet potatoes, popcorn and winter squash are already growing for fall. Fingerling potatoes and fall-crop potatoes are soon to be planted. Lettuces, cabbages, broccoli and fall tomatoes are starting in pots. It may take a little time, but the garden will be in full bloom again, soon.
We thank you all for the support and encouragement you’ve shown us. Athens is a GREAT community! We’re so glad to be a part of it!
See you soon!
