The bean and pea patch is a jungle. Blauhilde beans (a purple pole bean from Baker Creek) on the right, and sugar snap peas and a random green pole bean that I'm supposed to grow and give to a food bank on the left. I am loving the purple vines of the Blauhilde beans.
Sugar snap peas and Asparagus bean on the right, and Kentucky Wonder pole beans on the left. Some of the sugar snap peas are taller than me now, and some of the Kentucky Wonders have made it past the apex of the trellis. Still no bean flowers, but the peas have flowers and pea pods, some of which are very close to harvestable.
I've given up on the strawberry patch for this year. It's overgrown with weeds, and the strawberries are pretty much done for the year anyway. Between the weeds and the tiny green worms, I'm not sure what to do with this space next year--if I should try to dig up some of the plants in the fall and transplant them to another bed, or start over with new plants, or just keep them where they are and see what happens. It'll probably depend on how much energy I have when the other garden beds are done producing for the year. On the bright side, if I do decide to either start over or transplant, I can put some asparagus in with the strawberries this time.
I think that's it. Did I miss anything?
Until next time...happy gardening!
