Where potato plants once thrived, are nothing but tall weeds. Last year we never weeded and lost track of the potatos until almost November. This year, we harvest early.
Now some bad news. Edamame soybeans, which require a long growing season, were planted into a long row so that we could make an attempt at tractor weeding…. the magnificently fuzzy bean pods which attract forager…. the thrill of harvesting an organic batch…. met an untimely end under the tractor mower. It survived the in-row weeds, the lack of tractor weeding, and side by side weeds for almost 90 days.
Surprise, we may get a few watermelon after all.
Looking forward to a pumpkin patch soon. There are many different decorative varieties as well as eating varieties.
