It has gotten hot enough that all the spinach has bolted. But, that is just in time because it's time to put in the third round of green beans. So out came the spinach and in went the beans. The two earlier sets of beans are doing well and the oldest one is starting to look like it will flower soon.
I also harvested the cauliflower.
In the last about 2 weeks it has gone from only green leaves to having a good sized cauliflower head.
As you can see in the pictures I tied the leaves around the white cauliflower to keep it from turning yellow or brown in the sun. Covering the head is called blanching. You don't need to do it. Yellow Cauliflower grows and tastes the same, it's just yellow.
I'm sure the eggplant is glad to have the cauliflower gone. It was realy crowding it. The cauliflower square will be planted with potatoes about July 1 for a fall potato harvest.
Natalie Bumgarner planted watermelon, cantaloupe and yellow squash when she was here about two weeks ago. They are all up and have a high germination rate. Of all the seeds only one of the cantaloupe did not come up. Because we double planted all of them, that won't be a problem.
The peas are still going strong. We are getting about a pound a week from them. I am starting to see some problems however. Today there were aphids on the peas and there is also some powdery mildew. I think the peas are almost done so I am not going to do anything about it for now. If the aphids get too much worse I might spray with insecticidal soap. Hopefully the ladybugs will move in and take care of the problem for me.
