A Slightly Less-Wordy Sunday

If you’re familiar with the blogging trope “Wordless Wednesday” (where people post only pictures sans words), well…this isn’t quite that. In fact, it’s not that at all. We do only have mostly pictures this week to show, but they wouldn’t make much sense without some sort of description. Also, we’re already typing here, so strike two. Also…it’s not Wednesday.

Uhh…how ’bout we just get on with the pictures, yes?

The following garden update in images is brought to you by a gorgeous Memorial Day weekend!

First up, we've begun to harvest our greens - argula, lettuces, mesclun. Words really can't describe the potently tasty salads we've had of late!

Back in the garden, some of the arugula is already going to seed. The romanesco around the edges is doing nicely.

The rest of the greens and the kale are also on the rise.

We put a few extra kale plants in the with the cucumbers. Not sure how they'll do, especially since the cukes will no doubt spread.

Some of the peas are starting to flower! The soybeans continue on, and we added in the last of our romanesco seedlings in a space where the beans didn't take.

We're still not sure about the ground cherries (center), but the wax beans in this planter have taken off!

The other planter where the cowpeas coupldn't be happier. Still not sure about the ground cherries here either.

A view of the stone  bed. Tomatoes, peppers, greens, even basil and marigolds, all doing well. We planted asparagus along one of the sides, but have yet to see and shoots.

Out back, the newly-planted tomatoes and peppers soldier on.

A couple of our little tomatoes in the side bed didn't make it, so we transplanted new ones. Hopefully, they'll fare a bit better.

A long view of the long bed - corn, sunflowers, zucchini, peas.

A close-up of one of the corn mounds. Each contains 5 different seeds -- 3 types of sweet corn, blue corn, and popcorn.

While the melon patch is still quiet, the interspersed morning glory seems to be happy.

And finally, it looks like we will have marigolds out front, and maybe some violas if we're lucky!

This sidewalk bed is doing a little better than the other one.

If you made it all the way to the end of the pictures, then you get a gold star! And, of course, our thanks. It’s been a busy weekend, and we’ll be back with more words next time!
