I'm going to try to get another round of cucumbers in before the frost and these guys have just broken the surface.
I'll most likely have to pollinate them all by hand and find some way to keep the worms from boring into them. Seems like that's always my biggest fall cucumber problem. I'm wondering if I wrap them in pantyhose if that would keep the worms out.
I went out today to plant some more beans and it looks like I already did and forgot to write it down! Very cool.
So, over all, I'm not as down and out about my garden any more. I'm very lucky that we live in an area where I can get two rounds of summer crops in, although I most likely should have put these in at the end of July instead of just last week. When it cools down tonight, I'm going to stick in the broccoli and cauliflower. Maybe some carrots as well if I get crazy.
The Keychains for a Cause effort is going very well! I mailed out six more keychains and fobs yesterday, bringing our total sold almost to 30 which makes us excited. I'm working on making them their own page as well as a facebook page to help publicize them, but for now, I've added two more ribbon styles:
Black with white polka dots (the stitching will most likely be white) and white with black polka dots
I've also bought some Halloween style ribbon that I'll put up in the coming days. Hey, if the stores can decorate for Christmas in September, I can hock Halloween in August! I've also ordered ribbon good for Twilight fans, teachers, book lovers, and bus drivers, the last three being perfect holiday teacher and bus driver gifts!
The morning comes early. Sweet second summer gardening dreams.
