I never thought it would be mid-August when I'd harvest my first beans of the season. They're lovely French filet pole beans (I think).
I poked in seeds very late, not expecting very much, but finally, I had 5 lovely beans to harvest. They'll be great with the (first) Cozelle zucchini that will be ready tomorrow! Curious.
I'm already thinking about fall vegetables, seeds, sharing thoughts with others about fall vegetable gardening, etc., so it's definitely an odd feeling to have first beans and zucchini. And having summer cilantro that's lasting, too -- how unusual is that? I'd sowed it thinking 2 weeks, and I've been using it for longer than that, along with lovely large Italian parsley and basil.
We had over an inch of rain this morning - a welcome soaking.
Time to sow some fall beets, chard, spinach and other greens soon.
Without the darn woodchucks, I'd put in cole relatives. Oh, well.
