I've done a good job of staying out of the garden this week so far. Tuesday I was out gleaning. Wednesday I did get the dog walked before it was hot, but after harvesting some veggies I was chased inside. We got into the 90s and I'm such a heat wimp. Today I went into the garden before walking the dog which meant I got some work done, but oh the walk was so drippy. It wasn't that hot mind you, but the relative humidity was about 80%. Blech! So I'm once again inside in air conditioning. Not to lower the temperature, but to lower the humidity. I didn't do everything I needed to get done this morning. I still need to do some serious weeding in spots. But that will wait until tomorrow.
The onions are just starting to bulb up now. In a couple of weeks I expect I can start eating some of them. I really want them big enough to be worth picking. I have plenty of bunching onions that I'm not eating so I don't need them for green onions. But I want those bulbs.
My second row cover issue was the zucchini and the cucumbers. According to the GDD the borers ought to be out now. But the cucumbers are just starting to run (well the earlier planted ones at any rate). So they need to be uncovered. Not good timing on my part.
The oldest three cucumbers (the rest I had to reseed) were starting to get very long and climb the inside of the row cover before I moved it. So they needed their trellis up. I swear I had more 6' tall T-posts. But I can't find them anywhere. I had to remove the 4' ones from my plum tree and use those instead. I tied some bamboo to them so they would be tall enough. I don't have all the lines up, but I'll add them as the cukes get bigger and need more height.
