Despite the poor weather at the start of the season, it's shaping up to be a good year for summer crops. Tomatoes and peppers are looking great, as well as the winter squash. After harvesting the last broccoli and cabbage, I decided to pull up the two remaining cauliflower, even though they will be ready in about 10 days. I need that space for shell beans.
Speaking of beans, the first Musica pole beans were picked a few days ago. It's unusual to get pole beans before the first bush beans but these beans were from a few plants that were not eaten by the rabbits. The remaining beans are all from a second planting, and the first Provider bush beans should be ready for planting later this week. There's also more Vertina picklers and the first tomatoes - Mountain Magic. I've been pulling up the red cippolini onions on an as needed basis, and this one was needed for some green bean stew.
Yesterday I picked another Swing slicer and a Jimmy Nardello sweet pepper. The pepper plants are loaded with peppers this year. I'm really liking this cucumber, it's as good as Diva, and very healthy. The pickling cucumbers, sad to say, don't look like they are going to last much longer.
The beets were pulled up. They look pretty lame, but I'll try them on the grill. At least the cage over the bed kept the bunnies from getting them.
