|this photo was taken a few days ago- the beans have grown |
much taller than this now!
Today we planted various kinds of peppers, collard greens, squash, carrots, and heirloom tomatoes. I'll admit the thing I am most looking forward to are the tomatoes. We planted brandywine red/pink, brandywine yellow, cherokee purple, pineapple, and big rainbow varieties. A tall, "fence-like" support will allow the tomatoes to grow without using cages.

We would like to plant more of everything if we can somehow prepare another bed. Otherwise, we will just reseed the beds we have after the first harvest. I have yet to plant the pumpkins and I'd love to be able to find space for onions and potatoes. There's always next year!
I also want to thank everyone for their kind words and sympathies regarding Mr. Rue and Chamomile. I will miss them very much. If you've had chickens, you understand how difficult it can be not to get attached to your birds. Have a wonderful week!
