Banana Potatoes and Volunteer Pansies
Another hot, dry day. The thermometer says 22 degrees, but it feels hotter!
The first pea flowers.
My second winter squash seed (Red Kuri, the first is Sweet Meat) sprouted - finally! Two down, one to go...
In the main potato patch, R planted russetts. Planted at the back of the house are four banana potatoes, which we got from someone who was giving away extra seed potatoes.
Another first: radish. I have planted radish two or three summers. The tops grew beautifully, but quickly went to seed, and no actual radishes ever developed. These are from a package of pelleted radish seeds R bought earlier this Spring.
Lacinato ("dinosaur") kale in the foreground, Red Swiss Chard in the background.
Volunteer pansies in with the spinach and Swiss Chard.
