This sunflower is enormous! I am 5'10", and it now towers over me. It's an Evening Sun variety and is loaded with what should soon open up into blooms the color of a sunset. Pics to come soon.
Okay. I know I talked big about pulling out the broccoli plant, but in the end, I just couldn't kill it. I transplanted it to a pot on the porch. This way, it still gets to live but isn't casting too much shade on the surrounding veggies. It still hasn't produced any flowerets, but we'll continue to keep an eye on it.
The fence is coming along nicely. If the weather cooperates, we should be able to turn the goats out onto fresh grass within the week.
The little pickling cucumber vines are covered with blooms, and I've even cut a few of the earliest cukes over the past couple of days.
Zucchini has been going crazy lately. While my back was turned, this one got a bit too big to be tasty. The chickens didn't seem to notice, though.
Our kale sure is happy. We only planted two squares with it, so I thought we'd eat our way through it pretty quickly. Turns out, everytime I harvest it, more comes back in its place.
Some pickings from today.
