In the Ground
What's up? Zukes, green beans, cukes, tomatillos, potatoes, tomatoes, melons, leeks. We've just finished planting peppers and eggplants. For those of you who asked for more colors of peppers, this year we have red, yellow, purple and green. Some like it hot, so there are a few anchos and mulatos, but the majority of the peppers are sweets and bells. I have doubled the amount of tomatillos since last year, the better for green salsa. Of course there are more kinds of cukes this year: Lemon, Delicatesse, White Wonder, Marketmore, & Poona Khera. I have them hiding under a row cover to protect them from the dreaded leaf hoppers and cucumber beetles. See the lace holes those pest are making in the tomatillos.
