|The planted tomato patch - all 75.|
We finally got some rain on Saturday. I really cant remember when it did rain the last time!- it has been that long.
The tomato patch is planted and in the next few days I will start to string them up - I have 75 planted so stringing will take some time. The pole beans are also in the ground. I needed new pole so I found some nice 8-10 ft aspen poles in an abandoned field close to home. Wednesday I cut pole and Thursday I planted beans. The beans were in peat pots so I could plant them next to the poles after I had sunk the poles. My Grandfather George planted only pole beans and used old stick - i think they must have been Sassafras poles because they grow in groves in Southern Indiana and would have been a logical choice for his beans. ( The pictures are a bit out of sequence but this new blog system is still a problem!!!)
The apples are all bagged and we are experiencing a drop but so far we have had less than 100 bags drop so this is good. The hot weather we have been experiencing is not good but hopefully not too much scald will occur. I have only had apple scald happen when we have had really hot weather early in the bagging process - like June and like now...
Garlic scapes have been harvested and we are eating them in scrambled eggs with tarragon - really good. Don't let the garlic waste energy making flowers harvest those scapes and eat them as the first crop of garlic.
