With that out of the way, I will turn my attention to eggplant, and sweet and hot peppers tomorrow. Once those are finished, I will be on the home stretch - just a short row of basil and some bush snap and bush dry beans remaining to be planted. Then there is the rather unpleasant of climbing the ladder to hammer the 8 foot stakes into the ground for the indeterminate tomatoes in the big garden and around the edge of the driveway. My goal to have the garden completely planted - Sunday. We shall see!
We've started to really enjoy the plethora of lettuce we planted, and a big salad is our typical recent dinner. The hot weather is pushing it along fast and some varieties are bolting rather quickly. The heat is also having a negative effect on our non-lettuce greens. The beets, however, are looking great! And my little foray into growing carrots in large pots is also a success - they are so much more delicious than the little bags of so-called "baby" carrots!
