July 28 2017 – In My Garden – Holy Corn

July 28 2017 – In My Garden – Holy Corn

July 28 2017 Holy cow corn! What a difference a week and fish make for the corn. I came home from New York to broom and sweet corns that are growing against the poly in the high tunnel. They’re loving the white perch offal from a fishing trip a few weeks ago the extra warmth in the high tunnel. Here’s what’s in my garden on July 28 2017. The sweet corn is tasseling. I have to pollinate it by hand…

July 21 2017 – In My Garden I’ve mentioned a time or six that I’m at a writing retreat this week. No internet and little phone reception. I do hope that I can occasionally send a photo to Instagram if I stand in the exact right spot, stick my tongue out just right, cross my eyes, and hop backward. That’s about what it takes for me to get a cell signal. My laptop isn’t even with me this week, which…

¬†July 14 2017 – In My Garden I missed this last week! I was at camp, watching the loon chicks grow and writing. A lot of writing. And a lot of cleaning out, a spring cleaning that hasn’t been done at camp in quite some time. It’s now July 14 2017 and wow! The high tunnel beds went nuts while I was gone. I can’t believe how much everything grew. It’s doing a lot better in this new soil than…

June 23 2017 – In My Garden Where did the week go?!? I worked a few hours in the high tunnel this week. I’ve overfilled one raised bed and planted it. It’s overfilled to make up for settling as the organic matter breaks down, water swishes the sandy loam around, and the soil finishes settling. I planted three more pepper seedlings, and then I seeded bush beans, carrots, over seeded basil, and reseeded chamomile. A free range tomatillo plant was…

June 16 2017 – In My Garden

June 16 2017 It’s quiet in the vegetable garden this week, June 16 2017. Chickens are jerks sometimes. They found their way into the tunnel and feasted on the Ministro cucumber seedlings. They killed three and left enough of two to grow, but the growth is stunted. To be sure we have cucumbers asap, or at least as soon as possible considering our late start, I planted a few seeds in the empty spots. The chickens are now locked in…
