Early September in the Garden


Chris spends most mornings at the plot watering and doing random chores. Right now we’re waiting on compost before starting more seeds in other beds. Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on:

watermelons
Watermelon’s from a school’s plot. We took one of them but it was not quite ripe and very seedy.

Chris hand pollinated a few watermelon flowers to see if he could get a few more out of the season.

Brussels sprout seedlings…I think Chris said Long Island Improved is the variety.

Things are growing like crazy! Pays off that Chris is full time gardener right now!

    I want some samples from the harvest!! Fun pictures. Thanks for sharing them- I kept wondering what the plots looked like– complete with a skunk ape shirted person.

    OH WOW! I am all over this post! 🙂 We just planted some cucumber seeds, and *one* of my pumpkin vines started growing again. Also, the tomato and basil and the eggplant (especially the eggplant) are starting to bounce back. I’m excited for this next phase of growing. Last year at this time I was just starting out, but now I have a zillion ideas and plans and just need the weather to cool down a *tiny* bit.
