Well, let's see here... harvested a crop of turnip greens, though I'm not sure anyone will actually eat them. I grabbed turnip greens by mistake - I was aiming for purple globe top. Never had turnips greens. I have issues with any hairy vegetables, which is why I don't usually plant green beans, and turnip greens are spiny-haired! Have, however, decided Swiss chard is edible, as it graced the first garden salad: chard, sugar snap peas, basil, with some French dressing & soy bits imitating bacon.
The boys finally weeded out the last bed as requested, and I've got the first fourth of it pitchforked up and planted with mammoth sunflowers and a couple kinds of squash. Kid will fork up the rest once it's shaded again (100 degree temps, we're waiting for shade!), and I'll plant the rest of the squash and the watermelons. The ex-turnip green spot is going to sport the corn seed I found in the garden shed (dunno if it will grow, but we'll give it a shot!). And I've got even more peas for planting, once I get that viney stuff pulled up. It isn't flowering or anything, just vining, and it's NOT the peas I planted. I've lost one tomato plant, but the rest are beginning to realize they're supposed to be growing.
Have spent a bit trying to get the gook out of the raspberry bushes. Apparently, I also pulled up a lot of poison ivy while doing this. Now, I either managed to sweat the sap off, or I'm not allergic, because the only thing itching me are the thrice-damned mosquito bites, which liberally cover me poor legs. Mom informed me that area has lots of poison ivy, and I know there was some ivy I was pulling up. I'll be pulling up more later, because my elder son is vilely allergic to the crap, and needs to mow that area. I'm not hearing that the younger has broke out with a rash, so either he isn't allergic, or playing in the sprinkler cleared him up. *grins* Then again, he and I are allergic to strawberries, and his brother isn't, so maybe the allergies are switched!
The basil is doing real well in the raised bed, and the peppers are coming along nicely. I stuck a package of marigolds next to the peppers yesterday, so we'll see what happens with those.
Wandering Jew (the green with blue flowers version) has taken over the front flower bed, and in spite of it, the Johnny Jump-ups and pansies are doing very well, the irises have finished blooming (they were all yellow this year), and the other two plants I got from the greenhouse are just doing. The hosta I finally stuck in the toilet buried on the left side of my porch. The one on the right is still growing weeds. And no, I am NOT the one who buried them, they came with the house. I haven't decided what to stick in the right side pot this year, or in the washtub (came with me!) on the left. And the bathtub I got is still in the back of the truck, too. It will most likely become a goldfish pond once I am firmly decided about where to stick it.
The rosebush bed now has its own birdbath, but it's been pretty much attacked by pigweed and overly tall grass. I spent a good bit of time yanking grass out of the one part (along with some short pigweed), but it's got lots to go before I can consider it done. I think we'll be adding some sunflowers to it.
There's no sign of grape-age on the grapevines yet, the ants are horrible, the mosquitoes are getting there, and the peas are doing very well. Jazzie's potatoes are blooming, and Rave's strawberries - when you can spot them through the weeds (he is less of a gardener than I am!) - are starting to redden. The garlic is... yeah. Still everywhere.
I need to snag some pumpkin seeds, and find that okra pod I saved from last year. The store-bought stuff gave me all of three plants! Hm, yeah, that's it for now.
