As it goes, the Giant Marconi pepper is aptly named. This one is still going and hasn’t even started turning red. This will be an awesome stuffing pepper!
Blauhilde beans: They’ve gotten bigger faster than last year. We only have a few stalks that volunteered from last year’s crop. I plan to just save the beans to plant next year. We will have lots of lattice to cover…
This beefsteak volunteer is the single largest tomato we have currently. I can see the growth day to day.
San Marzano plum tomatoes. Two plants filling with a plentiful crop. The extra round of bone-meal looks to have helped resolve the end-rot. I can occasion still find it, but the volume is decreasing consistently.
Our mystery volunteer: it is either a beefsteak or a beefsteak cross-pollinated with something else from last year.
The beans are climbing; the tomatoes are growing; the peppers are budding.
The fence is expanding; the fire pit is underway; the gardens are developing nicely.
We are growing content within the surroundings of our wabi-sabi life.
