May went so fast! May was also warm and is finishing up with a week of 80+ degree days! The garden has responded to these temperatures with gusto in the growth department. All of the seeds except the potatoes are up after only a week including the corn.
I also put some extra onions in a pallet...
...and I seeded the pole beans today.
Along with Kentucky Wonder for fresh eating and canning I am growing True Red Cranberry for dried beans this year. They are actually native to Maine grown by our Natives and first settlers and are said to be perfect baking beans. I was mostly interesting in the fact that they are good for dried beans yet a pole growth habit seeing as most dried beans are bush which I am not so much a fan of. I'm excited to try this out!
I only have the pumpkins and squash left to plant which I am pre-sprouting because some of the seeds were old. After that I will just be tending, harvesting, and planting lettuce and greens as needed until the end of the summer when fall crops need to be put in.
