Over the past few days I've hand pollinated several females, but always in the afternoon when the buds on both males and females were closed for the day. I hope they take! Sunday, the man was kind enough to fix my beds that were falling apart. The boards were so warped that he had to use a come-along to wrench them into position and even then, some were unsalvageable. There are two boxes on the side yard that I'm just going to replace when this growing season is over. I don't know what possessed me to use 1 inch boards, but it was a bad decision.
I got around to putting some of the peppers in. This will be the third location for peppers in three years. If they don't do well here, I'm hanging up my hat.
Lastly, here's an aerial of the main corner yard taken about a week ago. Squash is lookin' good!! It's just about the only stinkin' thing I can grow consistently.
If I hold my mouth right - and the planets align accurately, The Corner Yard may have some big, big news for you mid to late next week. I can hardly stand it myself, but I don't want to let the cat out of the bag in case life happens and things don't come through as planned. Suffice it to say that this will be the biggest news ever to come our way. Seriously.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
