Beans are coming
Our green beans are starting to blossom and we should have a good crop of beans coming in during the last week of July and beyond. I hope it doesn't rain too much - moving about in wet beans is a sure way to spread disease and end the harvest! One of our rows is being eaten by something - maybe a woodchuck or a deer. I have a short fence around them to keep out rabbits, but I think I may need to improve the fencing there.
We still have great big lime green very sweet snow peas and lettuce and chard. Cucumbers - both slicers and pickling type should be coming on soon, too.
Corn is exploding upward. The warm weather and rain has really helped. We've planted five varieties of corn including Spring Treat, Bodacious (our favorite) and Lancelot. I prefer sweet but still "corny" tasting corn but we're growing a real variety this summer with a variety of maturity dates.
Most of our seed has come from Fedco, a cooperative seed company in Maine that sells all kinds of organic and sustainable seed.
