We have had so much rain here, my toes are getting webbed. In the last 2 weeks, we have had 2 gorgeous days and that’s it. The rest of the time, it alternates between sprinkling, rain, drizzling and torrential downpours. There is no way I can get any work done in the garden. It’s far too wet and it’s not good for your soil if you clomp around in there when it’s soaked.
I’ve been concentrating on the indoor stuff for the last while. This morning, though, when I watered the Greenhouse, I realized I better get it weeded. Here’s the before:
And the after:
That’s looking better.
These are Blue Lake Bush Beans. I know I am wasting space in the Greenhouse, but I have lots of bush bean seed and zero Scarlet Runner climbing bean seed. Here, we can’t grow climbing bean plants outside, as we have that pesky extreme night/day temperature swing.
Normally, I sow my Bush Beans in the main garden and cover them with Remay. This year though I am really trying to speed up the growth of these plants, for reasons I’ll tell you about later.
Blue Lake are a heavy yielder, which means lots of beans per plant. That’s fine by me – we need lots of beans. We don’t have anymore in the Cold Room. The beans are really tender and they don’t go stringy.
The tomatoes haven’t done much growing, although they are flowering. They desperately need more heat and sunshine.
The Sweet Green Peppers are holding their own. They too are looking for heat and sunshine. Here’s hoping we see some sun this week.
