The last of the seed goes in

It’s been a damp week here in Elkhorn, but I managed to get the last few seeds in the ground on Wednesday, during a window when the ground wasn’t too wet.

We’ve now got a couple hundred feet in rows of cucumbers, both slicers and picklers, and about a hundred feet of spinach started. Both should be ready in about five to eight weeks — about the last week of July to the first week of August.

In addition, a narrow angle of the garden that wasn’t really suitable for vegetables is now seeded with zinnias, gomphrena and bachelor buttons, for cut flowers later this summer.
