Escarole, sausage, bean and potato soup
We've had enough breaks in the rain for me to get in a lot of planting time. The past few days I've gotten 42 tomato plants, two types of corn, canteloupe, pickling cucumbers, Italian frying peppers, summer and winter squash, several varieties of hot peppers, bush beans and pole beans, more radishes and some herbs planted as well as various flowers and rose bushes. Needless to say, there's no time for the studio till it's all planted. The earlier planted cold weather crops are doing well. F
This marathon is going to come to a halt pretty soon because I'm running out of planting space and I'm not about to clear more land! I even planted a few tomatoes among the flower beds today! I just need about two more days to plant a second fig tree, the rest of the veggies, herbs and bedding flowers and then another day or two to feed everything,get a bit more on top of the weeding and clear the porch of all the gardening paraphernalia.
