At this point the only really new developments are additional emergence of potatoes and squash really kicking in. The main disappointments continue to be those that are direct seeded - beans, carrots and cukes, primarily. I am learning much this year that will translate into even greater success next year...mostly due (as I've noted previously) to staggering planting of the bales by the specific preferences of the crop type.
Bale by bale - we are nearing the end of lettuce and arugula (but after all, we are approaching mid June - we are thankful for the harvest that we did get!). I will ponder the fate of those two bales once the plants are pulled; the basil is certainly thriving in the second one. Chard, Kale and Collards look spectacular; thus far they've ended up in Sue's Smoothie creations, but soon they will find themselves sauteed as beds for grilled fish or in pasta dishes. The peas are growing, but this is one crop that demands much earlier seeding.
Those stubborn bush beans! I am seeing signs of emergence after replanting them yet again (and of course it goes and gets cool and rainy for days). Sooner or later I will get my bales of beans! The beet bales look fine, the carrot and leek bales spotty. I've started more leek seeds, so fill ins are on the way. I have seedings in all of the potato bales - in one case all 4 seed potatoes are up. I am not too fussed about it - any blanks that still exist in a week or so will be filled in with sprouting seed potatoes.
Squash and cukes are spotty as well, but one summer squash bale is finally thriving, with flowers and squash not too far away. All in all, I find this garden a joy to tend to - just some watering and occasional feeding.
