Tonight I planted three hills of Butternut squash. Tomorrow I will plant a couple of other varieties and some pumpkins. I have corn soaking to plant another small batch. I will do another batch on Sunday.
Matt worked up the field between the garden and the orchard and planted buckwheat but there is a space there for me to use and I have plenty of choices of what to plant there: lentils, black beans, cow peas, soy beans, more corn, sweet potatoes. I'm sure there's more but I cannot think of what.
We picked 11 more cucumbers off the cukes in the greenhouse tonight. There may be at least another four or so ready by Saturday morning too. I also found one, single wax bean on the beans in the greenhouse. There are lots of blossoms so hopefully they will be bearing lots of beans real soon. The Provider beans in the garden will be ready by next week.
I really need to weed the beans too, but then I really need to weed everything. Where to start?
We got a bit over a quart of snow peas tonight at the farm and I had picked some from the ones at home as well. There will be turnips for market this week. I hope I can squeeze out a few radishes too. If I were to water the parsnips good I may be able to get some out on Friday. The ground is so dry I can't even pull them out.
Tomorrow I will weed the two tomato rows and the rest of the pepper row so I can finish the mulching. That's my number one priority tomorrow.
