It's forming a nice head. Now here is the Green Magic.
An even nicer head, picked yesterday. I just found a worthy replacement for Major. After harvesting the head I stripped off half the leaves and gave them to the bunnies. They will get the remainder of the leaves today.
The spring-planted spinach is actually heading up, unusual in this garden. Usually the fall-planted spinach does well, spring spinach is hit or miss. This is Burpee's Double Choice hybrid, available at the hardware racks, and it has always done well for me. I also planted Tyee, which is supposed to tolerate hot weather. It has already bolted and been removed.
Lettuce is still growing well in the SWC's.
The cucumbers were set in a few days ago after the cool weather had passed. They have to co-exist with brassicas for a while longer. I tried to leave some room for the cukes when I set in the brassica seedlings. Once they start up the trellis they will get plenty of light. A stake was set next to each cucumber seedling to give it a 'path' to the trellis. There are four Calypso cucumbers, a pickling cuke, and one slicing cucumber, Diva.
I'm about ready to give up on beets. Something, maybe a cutworm, cuts off the leaves every time. From the six seedlings that were planted maybe one or two will survive. Whatever it is, it ignores everything else and cuts down the beets.
There will be plenty of dill for pickles. For a while I was concerned that there wouldn't be any dill, as the seed I planted took a long time to germinate. Then it began showing up everywhere, in every bed. Now I'm thinning it out. Same goes for cilantro.
The pole beans have found the strings. In a few days they will reach the top of the trellis. Behind them are sweet potatoes, Vardaman.
And today was the day to wash the remaining pots that the seedlings were grown in.
One of these days I'll get back to the kitchen remodel. After the deck is stained, and the levee gets more dirt, and the rabbit has her litter. . .
