Beautiful summer day, with no rain for a change (unlike yesterday!), and got a little gardening done. Pulled bunching onions from 4 squares, and planted 3 squares of summer radishes, and 1 square of lettuce.

The bush beans are beginning to bloom - Blue Lake on the left, and Provider on the right, 9 square of each with 9 per square

The cucumbers and squash are beginning to take over the cattle panels that were installed for their trellises.

The beds are all doing great in spite of the continuous rain for the past several months - if we were dependent upon a in-ground gardens, we would not even have a garden.

Beautiful, OG! When you say "planted 3 squares of summer radishes" does that just mean you're planting them in the summer or is there actually a radish variety that can be grown in the summer -- like here where we have serious summer?

CN, by Summer Radish, I mean that I planted Sora radish seeds.  Don't know that it would survive your heat, but it does well here in the midwest throughout our hot summer - high's in the upper 90's usually. It is the only radish, other than the Summer Daikon, that we can grow all summer long  Here is a description of it:

"Sora is a reliable all season radish, but particularly excels in hot and dry conditions when other varieties are easily stressed. High quality, uniform roots form attractive bunches and resist pithiness."  From High Mowing Seeds

I only wish our summers were in the 90s, but this might just be worth a try. Thanks, OG.

The onions are already starting to bulb up.  They were planted 16 per square @ 2 per hole, but we've been thinning them out as we eat the green onions so that the ones remaining have room to grow.

OhioGardener:  I'm Really impressed with your garden. It's so neat and everything is so GREEN. How often do you you have to replace some of the mulch between your beds?

Thanks, Mr B!  Normally I apply compost 3 times a year - in the fall after vegetables are harvested, and before the winter cover crops are planted; in the spring after the cover crops are cut down, and a couple weeks before planting begins; and as mulch around the plants after they are growing nicely.  I make a lot of compost, thanks to all of the vegetable pulp I get from neighbors and the juice bars, and the coffee grounds from Starbucks. The plants thrive on the rich compost, in addition to the compost tea I apply monthly. Periodically, though, I have to add some vermiculite and coir to keep the beds from becoming pure compost.

Weeded in my beds today.  Peas are about spent.  Will succession plant carrots.  Did a mild fish emulsion kick to everything (STINKY) today and actually had to water????  There are a couple of Sunburst that are ready...

Baby cukes noted, baby patty pans noted, baby peppers noted .... and the occasional mater.  Taters up and going strong.  Onions looking good.  Zucchini is weak looking; gave it a hit of fish emulsion...and actually had to water????

Strawberries over.  Will rip out peas in the next few days.  Cukes and carrots!!!! carrot

The Curly Kale is now producing more than we can eat.  But, we love it! Very Happy

Most of that Curly Kale turned into Air Fryer Kale Chips.  The only problem with those Kale Chips is that they are addictive! lol!
