Each week this month I’ve thought this would be the end of my gardening story. But my little garden has kept going. Please note in the photo my first-ever home-grown peas. The cucumber vines have become so long they’ve grabbed onto the garlic chive flower stalks for support. Surely, they’ve played themselves out. But I’ve enjoyed them and this past week I made another batch of refrigerator pickles from them. Yum. I like and recoomend lemon cucumbers.
Unphotographed was my baby leaf lettuce brought in for lunch yesterday. I also transpanted a couple starts of it earlier this week into a tub which I will cover with plastic to try and extend the growing season slightly. I’m picturing a sort of mini, would-be cold frame. It will sit in full sun, just as soon as the oak tree drops its leaves.
