Can't get in!

Category: Vegetable Gardening | Posted: Mon Aug 04, 2014 12:47 pm

Thank you to all my volunteer tomatoes.
It is a pleasure to see so many happy plants. BUT, start producing already!

Anyway, first thing is first.
I know it is caused by raking, but all of my volunteer cherry tomato plants are in the very front of the garden. I can't get in! Yesterday, I had to step on some of my broccoli just to get over to the squash and check to see if there are any little yellow sausages on the sad little plants. One.
Pretty pathetic that I got excited over that, but that is how bad the season is.

I'm only starting to see green cherry toms now. I noticed my cherry toms are usually ready sooner than the beefsteak or plums.

I have been getting some cukes and some zucchini. I have a few watermelon that are currently softball sized and some acorn squash on their way. My peppers are just leafy plants. I have one blossom on my eggplant.

Broccoli are large, leafy green plants, but no heads at all. The kohlrabi is doing well. Lettuce is looking good.
The baby spinach is growing like crazy.

I'm strongly considering pulling the broccoli just to get some walking room, as I've given up on the possibility of heads. Any thoughts?

Our kohlrabi is great. We can't keep up with them. But we have managed to eat all of them. Soon we will be giving it away. I always love that.

I'd agree about the broccoli. If it's not going at produce pull it up and send it to the compost pile. Broccoli is a cool weather crop anyway isn't it?

I love my kohlrabi. I thought I planted more, but it seems that my seeds are a bit mixed up. I ended up planting some kohlrabi among the broccoli and vice versa. The same happened with my acorn and butternut squashes. I ended up planting all acorn and no butternut. *pout*
Oh well.
Yes, the broccoli is a cool weather crop. I was debating whether or not I should let it go and see what happens in the autumn. If I shouldn't bother please let me know and I'll pull it.

Can you take a picture of the growing-point of the broccoli for us to see?

I'm sorry, Sjoerd, I ended up just pulling it out. I read that I have a little bit of time to plant broccoli for an autumn harvest, so I'll plant this weekend for one more try.
The plans for next year are coming along much better, though.

Oh, I see.
Right then, meid. Good luck with the second planting.
