A bit more this week. Garlic is out and drying in the pole barn. In its place I seeded another Green Tiger summer squash. I still haven't gotten the first summer squash from the plant that was seeded in May. Most summer squash don't last the season, and I like to plant a new one every month or so.
Late last week I harvested more cucumbers, both picklers and a slicer, the first eggplant and a few okra.
Still no beans, as the rabbits leveled the first seeding. They have been a real problem this year, and are still nibbling on the beans in spite of Neem oil sprays. Since they also got the lettuce in the Earthbox, I raised the stand about a foot and a half above ground level. Then I seeded okra at each end of the Earthbox. It's Jambalya, a smallish okra that should do well in a container. Now let's see them reach that.
The last of the cabbage was picked over the weekend, Point One and Gonzalez. Also a small head of broccoli. I had my first success with making sauerkraut and I'll make another batch from this cabbage. Until this my fermenting attempts have always failed, even after adding starter culture. This time I added some yogurt water and the cabbage started bubbling the first day. It's delicious, very sour with a fresh cabbage taste. I never knew what I was missing.
