There's okra on them thar spindly looking plants.
We had three beautiful sunny cool days last week; Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I mean cool like waking up to 57 degrees. Unbelievable in August in North Carolina. But, the heat has come back, and with a vengeance! 96 hot humid degrees today!!!
Anyhow, back to the garden. It was time to pull up the buggy bean vines, the squash, and the cucumber vines, and dig a spot for stir-fry broccoli and a few collard plants.
and that's exactly what we did; set out twelve broccoli and six collard plants. If they do any good it will shock me. I've never been able to grow any kind of fall crop. This should give my sister and brother-in-law a hardy laugh. Seems like it was 254 collard plants they set out last fall. :( But that's okay. I did say this is a teeny tiny garden.
and thank you! I feel so much better about this plant...
Oh, and did I tell you about the friendly spider who followed me home?
This is his web on the back screen door. On one of those cool days last week I "finally" got the weeds pulled from the Iris bed at the bottom of the back steps.
This was the weedy mess in spring of 2017!
Anyhow, busy busy pulling weeds, I reached down and almost grabbed the spider and it's web which was spread between two or three Iris leaves. Carefully, I finished the weeding, leaving the web and the spider untouched. Well, the next morning, the spider and it's web had moved up the back steps, all seven of them, and up the screen door. I'm wondering if he tried to get inside but found the door locked. Last summer we had two of these big spiders in the garden.
Thank you friends! Hope to be back soon.
