Got a lot done today. Weeded the asparagus bed, the basil and the calendula and sunflower beds.We have hired a helper to combat our weed problem. We are making a dent and it is a great feeling. The helper weeded today and we made a dent in some of the weeds along the plastic. We also planted more cucumber seeds and summer squash and zucchini on plastic. And of course, we picked blueberries and ate some too!
We are growing a new cucumber this year. It is called Orient Express – grows about 12 inches long. This pictures shows two of them at the bottom and two of our standard pickling cukes at the top. We had a farm family visit the farm today and we picked one of these Orient Express cucumbers and they ate it right there in the field. They loved it. So don’t we, and our dogs do too. Guess we will grow this again. They are very eye catching too.
