This weekend was very mild but not much was harvested - the first of the Rhubarb was picked as it was getting a bit over crowded, few shoots of brocolini and some of the last asparagus for the year. The bed was not producing as well as I hoped so I don't want to overtax it and will let it grow out a bit. Hope next year will be better. First of the baby strawberries were picked and my hubby enjoyed them for a treat. There are loads of flowers blooming but will have to wait few more weeks for really good harvest (pending no more storms).
At the house our cucurbits are growing nicely, waiting for weather to get above 50 at night to be transplanted. There are several varieties of cucumbers, summer and winter squash, luffa, cantaloupe and watermelons have been seeded. Also running an experiment with hydroponic cucumber - it seems to be very happy there! Growing very fast and very healthy.
Also part of the hydroponic experiment are tomatoes - growing twice as big as in pots; chard - so-so for now but I hope it will pick up, asian greens as usual and whole lot of letuces and even one melon.
And in the last picture you can see an addition to the back yard - chestnut trees were packed in the car, delivered and planted - 4 of them. I do hope at least 1 will make it as so far we haven't had good track record with others like walnuts. And deer tend to strip anything we plant so I hope for 1 out of 4. Otherwise in 10 yrs we'll be swimming in chestnuts.
