Planting happened a little earlier than usual because of the great forecast.
I'm trying out red plastic mulch for the first time. I really don't want to spend the hot month of August weeding in the sun so hopefully this will help and an added benefit would be if it increases fruit yield.
I only was able to plant half of the Romas, the other half will get planted later in the week.
The bed with the straw mulch was planted with ground cherries, peppers and tomatillos.
The bed in between will have squash and the front bed will have eggplants. I'm still figuring out what will go in the side bed and the back bed. Probably beans and maybe corn or sunflowers. It's tricky this first year because I need to figure out how the sun will move across the plot in the summer. I'm surprised that the neighbors on either side of me have not shown up or put up their fencing. I know it's still early, but I'm always so eager to get started.
It's supposed to rain until Thursday so I won't be able to work over there until then.
In the home veggie patch the peas are starting to form:
And the potatoes are growing, time to add some more compost!
