So, I still had some sunflower seedlings, and we ran out of mulch hay, so…. This afternoon, Dan, who must be as crazy as I am (and I love him for it!!), helped me plant just a few more things. The aforementioned sunflower seedlings, and some winter squash seeds, my two favorites, Confection and Butternut. It’s kind of late, and I’m not going to add row cover, so my chances are slim, but why not? At least if they survive, they’ll surpress the weeds!
Since I was out there, I gave the leeks, garlic, and peppers a drink of fish and seaweed emulsion. while fertilizing, I noticed two of the Carmen peppers have peppers!! Whoo hoo! I counted 4 peppers all together.
The rest of the pepper plants are looking wan, especially the San Luis Ancho chile peppers, seen on the left. Both plants have lost some leaves and are looking yellow and frail. I hope the fertilizer gives them a boost.
We puttered a bit more, beefing up the groundhog prevention strategies, then said our good-byes to the garden. I’m going to miss it, but I know I will have a fantastic summer.
