Transition

July 6, 2012

Our first blueberries are starting to ripen.

Early July, and sometimes into mid and late July (depending on the weather) is a period of transition for the produce that I grow. Many of the first cool season crops are coming to an end and some of the longer, warmer season crops are beginning to produce. The spinach and some of the first and second plantings of peas were pulled out this week to make room for more lettuce and some fall crops, like Brussell’s sprouts and kale. Often, early July is a transition time for the weather, too. The rain finally stops and the sun comes out. This year is no exception. It looks like we’re in for some heat this weekend, which should be great to get those warm season crops moving along.

Here are a few pictures of what is on the way out and, mostly,what is on the way in in the garden:

The arugula is flowering; it is just about done

The first planting of Provider beans have buds…they are on the way.

The sweet onions are starting to bulb

The cucumbers are looking beautiful this year.

This is the earliest I’ve gotten Brussell’s sprouts into the ground

I think this will be the first ripe tomato; a Stupice.

The berries are growing on the grape clusters.

The Asian pears are looking good.

The potato plants look great right now…I hope they keep it up!
