What’s growing now?

May 24, 2010

As now the time has passed for turnips, radishes, broccoli, cabbages, and lettuces, it’s a whole new season with the May heat and sun. Here in Hillsborough, we’ve been averaging mid-80s with mid-60s at night. Prime growing conditions (I fervently hope!) Here’s a peek at what I’ve got in the garden now in late May.

Amish Paste tomatoes (about 5 plants, one pictured below), two Pink Brandywine tomatoes, two German Johnson tomato plants, and two Roma tomato plants.

Blue Lake Bush Beans (a four foot row, planted around the 7th of May)

Zucchini, but of course silly me, I didn’t pay any attention to varieties of the squashes or cucumber. Here’s hoping they work well!

And a yellow squash that was tucked between the two beet rows, now without those friends, hopefully she’ll have the room to grow leaps and bounds.

And for my darling husband, a watermelon vine! I aim to corral the vine into an area in the garden that houses an old tree stump.
