Midsummer Harvest

July 26, 2009

Back from a week on Mount Desert Island and a stay in Northeast Harbor.  I decided to leave the veggies unsupervised for the week and they did just fine.  We’d had a couple of salads from the lettuce and herbs before we left, but other than a handful of shelled peas, that was it.  Mr. E scoped out the situation:

Had about 25-30 of those guys and accomplished one of my to-dos this year, which was to, uh, grow more peas than last year.  What else?

Lots of flowers on the plants, but only one fruit so far.  Weather is still fairly cool and rainy, so I can’t expect much more anytime soon.

Corn’s doing well.  And so are the squash, broccoli, carrots and aforementioned lettuces.

One potato plant had a visit from the blight while we were gone, so I pulled the whole thing out and took out the two potatoes it managed to grow
