Every time I go to the garden I am surprised at how much it has grown in only a day or two. I am also kind of surprised about how much needs to be picked again. Last time I harvested I realy cut back the spinach hard and I thought it would take a while to get it to regrow, but it is back with huge leaves and was ready to pick again. Same with the greens. It is starting to get warmer, and this time I saw the evidence of the spinach starting to bolt so I cut it way back again. Totals for this leafy greens harvest were:
Spinach: .328 lb
Mustard Greens: .400 lbs
Turnip Greens: .152 lbs
Also the beans are up and growing. It is about time to plant the next round
We Have a Worm in the Cauliflower
I was at the garden in the early morning, and the first thing I do is walk around and look at everything. When I looked into the middle of the cauliflower I was an imported cabbage worm. I was excited, but did not get a picture. When I went back later, I could not find it. I wanted to catch it and feed it to the skink (more on that later). I am sure it is still there, but just hiding from the sun. It has left a large pile of poop at the bottom of the leaves. I will be spraying BT (Bacillus thuringiensis) the next time I am there.
