are now up to my knees. they opened some blossoms yesterday, which i think means 1-2 weeks until harvest.
mystery tomato update: they’re small, somewhat pear-shaped, with a nipple on the blossom end. the plant itself is long and wispy rather than thick and bushy like most. any guesses?
i pulled a few test carrots this week...one was orange and full sized, the other two were white and about half the width.
it’s going to be tricky figuring out when to pull these--i planted a blend of six heirloom carrots and apparently they don’t all mature at the same time.
the strawberries are still coming out in slightly freaky shapes. i wonder if it might be because i’m not great at keeping them watered.
the first female zucchini flower opened today--the one day i don’t have a single male flower, of course. so, barring virgin conception, this one will not become a zucchini.
we spotted it on the way up the hill. the most likely candidate i can find in my i.d. books is scorpion weed. i took home some seeds to try growing.
