Yep, its a bit on the side of "late" to be doing this now, but the space that had the fennel was just making the weeds happy and me irked. So i went ahead and cleaned it up and am attempting a somewhat late planting of Mammoth dill, cilantro and i used up the last of a very old packet of spinach that has been hanging around 9 years or so. I never know what to do with things like that. I don't even know if any of the spinach will come up, but if it does it will be interesting. If not, no loss.
According to what i read, i could expect a good harvest of dill if i had planted it a couple weeks ago, maybe i can expect a paltry harvest if planted now. Paltry is fine! Anything is fine.
I was thinking i might plant peas, but i don't eat peas. My kids do, but i don't think its a good time to try. I need to consider remembering to get some snow pea type seeds, i eat those.
The hubbs took the little one with him grocery shopping so i have an extra hour and now she's napping so i actually had some extra time to do stuff.
I even managed to make some Summer Squash Bread...yes, its actually a recipe for summer squash, not just zucchini. Not like they are very much different of course.... but still.
I don't eat such things but hubby reports that it is very good. I made it per instructions, i didn't change anything. You can find it here if you'd like:
I also set some carrots to dry, they look so cool like this. Of course, one had to jump ship.
It usually misses us lately, like it is literally being pushed away by something..
I found a tennis ball sized cantaloupe in the garden this morning, didn't get a picture, but its great to see, i was wondering if i had forgot to plant them or something, lol.
I just remembered that i haven't seen hide or hair of a banana melon yet.
I'll have to take a close look around there. Its funny how big a melon can get before i see it... they blend in so well and the vines tangle so much. I think i need to get some serious trellises built next year.
