There was a teeny bit of rain last week. Here’s hoping enough rain and enough heat fuels this summer so these watermelon and grow grow grow!
I started the green beans a tad early this year, and so far they are looking good.
Soy beans are longer-season plants so they went in a long straight row toward the back of the fields. Dan worked the tractor up and down one side before I yelled for him to stop. All the dirt that was thrown on top of the soybeans have to be dusted off so the plants continue to get sunlight. Maybe I’m being a little compulsive there, but I would love to have organic non-gmo soybeans.
The potatoctopus that was sprouting in my cabinet is by far the most successful seed potato. There’s another bag of potatoes that started to go bad, and it’s in the barn waiting for me to plant. By the way, have you ever smelled potatoes going bad? Oh my nose.
