The 9 inches of rain we received in the past 4 days has given birth to a public health crisis for our cucumbers, squash and melons- powdery mildew. Our veggies have entered a fungal brothel of no return. Their leaves risk being left white, brittle and crumbly and their fruit limp and deteroriating. If only a prophylactic campaign could save them!
It takes the right sort of conditions to get broccoli to head up. These lovely heads have reached their full climatic potential. We planted them at the right time, nurtured them with nutritious soil and plenty of water and allowed them leap out of their stem only when they were ready to blossom. One must not apply pressure or they my bolt prematurely. Yum!
In the coming weeks we plan to post many photos of potatoes being ripped from the ground, slathered in dirt and laid out naked in their natural state for all potato lovers to admire. We hope these lascivious images of dirty spuds laid upon one another does not provoke an outcry and offer pre-emptive apologies for those sickened by the filth of potatoes exiting the earth.
