Sights from around Crooked Acres.
First squash harvested – yellow straight neck, pattypan, and zucchini – along with the lettuce for that day’s lunch salad. By the time I could finally get into the garden without sinking in up to my ankles in mud, there was a zucchini that was 12 inches long and weighed two pounds. (We gave it to the chickens, because when zucchini are that big, they’re less tender and more seedy than we like.)
Red romaine lettuce. I didn’t order the seeds for that lettuce; I got them free with an order and decided to give them a try. I didn’t really like it, because it’s more than a little bitter. After I took this picture, I pulled it all up and gave it to the chickens, then planted more Jericho romaine in that bed.
The corn is bouncing back, but the green beans (on the left) are very unhappy. We talked about replanting, but I think we’ll get enough beans to get us through the summer. I’m not a huge green bean fan, I much prefer squash and tomatoes.
I know the Crooked Acres Wednesdays have been low on dog and chicken and duck pictures. I’ll make it up to you next time, promise!
Stinkerbelle keeping an eye on things. Despite the fact that she’s atop the kitchen cabinets in this picture, she’s actually been spending a lot of time on the floor following Tommy around. She sure does love that boy!
