Do you remember when we planted sweet potatoes in the chicken field at the beginning of June? Three rows of sweet potatoes in a few different varieties were planted and mulched.
Around that same time we planted four rows of beans, including one row of black eyed peas. Shortly after that, Stewart planted a few Kazakh melons, a couple of Hopi Gray winter squash, and a few Tatume summer squash.
After a recent rain of over 6 inches, which I’m told is incredibly rare in July, things are at least hydrated. As far as soil health and nutrition, we’re still working on that.
But the Lord has given these rows color and life, so we will wait and see what is to become of them. Three rows of the beans are flowering nicely, the sweet potatoes are sprawling lushly, and the melons and squash are either fruiting or getting close to maturation.
We even picked our first green bean the other day, my littlest man and I. He was more than happy to pick it and model it for us… and eat it just a bit later.
He’s always claiming to be more of a potato-grower, but I think he could manage both, don’t you?
