I haven't seen any bees out as of yet, so I don't know if the ones that open during the week are pollinated or not. I'm hopeful that the bees will show up soon, but if not, I'll be a kept woman again starting tomorrow, so I'll be okay. BTW, side note: Tomorrow's graduation. Graduation and all senior activities like breakfast, dinner, tickets, diplomas, walking cards, and the ceremony itself make up my responsibility. It's a ton of work. This year for our senior memory project, I collected and filed (students helped) over 5,210 pieces of mail to our seniors. I stopped counting at 5,210. It was fantastic. Parents have been so much more positive this year than last year. We've got almost all positive feedback except the father who told me he was so glad he was going to be "done with you people (meaning the administration and me) when the week was out." I replied, "so will I, sir" meaning him and the parents, however judging by his smile and goodbye wave he was too dense to realize that.
Back on topic, you can see the dragon tongue beans are flowering. I'm curious to see the full beans on these suckers.
The peppers keep loosing blossoms after they've flowered which makes me sad, but I've got one Cherokee purple tomato plant from Dan that's got over 30 flowers on it. I'm thinking I'll have to limit that number on my own, but it's impressive to see. The brandywine tomatoes are flowering like mad, but all of the flowers keep falling off. I've heard it's amazingly difficult to grow brandywine tomatoes in Georgia, so I'm not keeping my hopes up. I've got one tomato that's got a toe hold, but I'm not going to waste my time on them. I'll give them another week or two. If they keep dropping flowers, I'm pulling the one without the tomato and planting some cucumbers. I can always use more cucumbers.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
