garden update

 

Took down most of the shade cloth yesterday.  realized the reason the squash aren’t coming back is not enough light.  Should have come down a couple of weeks ago, we’ll see if this is soon enough

IMG_0375 (1024x768)three different planting of beans here, at least 2 weeks between each. they’ve all caught up with each other though and are now starting to flower.  two different varieties here, so probably won’t be keeping the seeds from these.
