photos of this year's progress - between thunder-boomers . . . .
corn - somebody mentioned, knee high by 4th of July - check. put the plot next to the wall - hopefully providing shelter against the wind blowing it all flat - so far so good....
peas - two varieties. on the left Super Sugar Snap (64day)
back and to the right Dark Seeded Early Perfection (65d)
the Super Sugar Snap grew far too tall for the 48" trellis, flopped over, lost 70-90% of the stems to bending / kinking. not a candidate for next year. the Dark Seeded Early Perfection grows 36-40 inches - just right for my set up.
tomatoes going boom-boom . . . nothing red yet.
a late potato volunteer still in bloom, slightly past prime
a grocery store basil, set out in the garden - smells great!
