Here it is June 23rd.
1st alfalfa cutting. Cold wet weather delayed everything here.
3/4 acre should have 2 tons this cutting.
Horse Radish in the apple bin (jail). It doesn't get along with anything. Spreads worse than......
Elephant "garlic". Very mild. Grate raw on anything. Excellent baked and mixed with butter.
Hard neck garlic. 3 varieties (reduced from 7) Each has 4-8 large cloves and a unique flavor. Very very flavorfull. Excellent for aioli or added to a hollandais.
June 28th and the corn is 2" tall. I plant "Bodacious". A 75 day se variety.
At the far end are the "Blue Lake" pole beans. They are in jail to keep the
quail away. Quail just love the tender bean sprouts.
Cherry tomatoes by the back door. A-100's. (from seed)
Cilantro and peppers. Bells(seed), jalapenos, anaheims, and poblanos.
Table grapes. 2 varieties. So much better than store bought.
Fall raspberries. great jam.
Table cherries. 5 varieties. A late frost did the blossoms in on the lower 1/3rd of
the trees. The birds get the top 1/3. I will make do with the middle third.
Quince. Very unique acidic/sour refreshing flavor. Rosy pink color. I guess I can't describe the flavor worth a darn.
Things are looking up. 16 hrs + daylight and 90* days and 65* nights. Things should start growing now ?????
Some of you are eating tomatoes now. We don't have blooms yet. I refuse to show our 16 Roma tomato plants. The rain beat them to death. They had to re-sprout from the roots. Up about 4" and growing.
The same with the cukes, butternut and cantaloupes. Had to restart from seed.
Thanks for looking, Dave
