harvest 2020 begins

The first of the fruits are ready. my summer art project is finishing its first phase of experiments.

first the mystery melon that got cut off it’s vine before i thought it was ready. well, ready or not, it was awesome sweet and delicious better than any other melon ive ever had. might be my sweat in it….

then there was possibly the only cabbage to NOT be destroyed by the white moths. best wok up ever.

i ate peas all summer, and still should have enough to see next year 10x as much as this year.

and the biggest surprise of all is still waiting for me to unwrap it. no idea how to tell when its ready, some say stem shrink, some say yellow ground spot, i say i dont know how to attach it back onto the vine if i pick it too early…..

Growing Things


one week left in Taurus, so here’s a report on the greenery.

newest camper (not mine) has doubled size and awareness in 2 weeks, you know how they are at this age, chewin and poopin….


mom and dad have taken to hiding out in the house and garage to get away from the newly fledged kids wont leave them alone, plus it’s warm on foggy days.


these peas are very similar to natives i guess, no bugs chowin on them and soooo sweet too?  the experiment of using sunflowers for trellis timing was off, (volunteer too early, purpose too late) but they don’t hate each other so far…


this is one mustard plant.  pinched along to maximize seed.  fence is 5′ tall.


recycled redwood berry box 2nd version.  needing the bird netting now thus the end sticks up.


early box already rotating, more dill and lettuce  in the blank where 2 lbs of winter potatoes came out.  take that foodco !!!
