Bradley's Fort part 2
The tomatoes have not started turning yet but I suspect it won't be long before the urban ranch's kitchen counter will be filled with tomatoes on a daily basis. What I don't give away I just can and use for soups later in the winter. Yummm!!
The cucumbers have started to produce. I suspect it will be a large harvest of cucumbers this year. I've already started giving them away as fast as I can. I want to make some dill pickles for Bradley but I think I better try just a few this year and see if he likes them before getting into full production. I will try a few quarts to see how they turn out. The cucumber on the right side of the counter is an English cucumber for sandwiches. A friend of mine asked if I could grow a couple plants for her. Well, I hope she likes them as they seem to be very productive.
You can see that the cucumbers are trying to take over the garden. They have reached the top of the eight foot structure that I built for them to climb. One vine has gone a courting to the pretty little bush next door. It has crawled up the chain link fence and across the top rail of the fence and intwined with the bush on the right of this picture. I'm not too sure about what the result will be but maybe a new type of bush cucumber is in the making. What do you think?
Sorry I haven't been more frequent at blogging but the back yard calls and days of summer are quickly slipping away.
May all your gardens be watered with fresh rain water when needed. May all your projects be finished before the summer ends. May you all stay in good health all the days of summer. If you can't stay cool then stay hydrated.
