Junque Yard: What's happening at the Micro-Mini Ranch
My tomatoes are finally starting to ripen. My beans, pumpkins, melons, and zucchinis finally have blossoms.
Harvest is going to be late this summer, but I will have something to show for our efforts.
I think the excessive heat this year caused the cycle to slow down. I have lots of green leaves everywhere, and I made a point to water more than I normally do, which was good because we've had a drier than normal summer. But everything is growing, and for that, I'm thankful.
Now, I'm trying to figure out what fall crops I want. Definitely spinach, carrots, and I'm thinking broccoli, maybe cauliflower.
I hope those things take well to growing in containers, because the pumpkins, zukes, and melons are taking up all the space in what we refer to as the "back 40."
That's inches folks, I don't call it the micro-mini ranch for nuthin'.
