kalachuchi, pears, asparagus. When we bought this house fifteen years ago, we started a bed of asparagus. The last two years we didn't water it or weed it, it faded away to nothing. This year I got fifty roots from Stark Nursery and poured the water and fertilizer to it. We might have asparagus next year

Wow, Jay, those veggies look fantastic! Didn't those beds have plumies in them a couple of years ago?

Record temps make me feel better. I was inside all during those scorchers so I was a bit puzzled when my plants all looked so droopy in the evenings, and I thought it was just the summer blues around here.

I can't believe the long beans can sustain the amount they are producing...

Great crop. I love those beans.They taste better than regular beans to me. Bottle gourd also looks very nice. :)

Actually that is Opo squash. (we eat it). It's not exactly the same as bottle gourd.

Yup, same thing. It has various names all over Asia. Considered a good vegetable ie easily digestible.

Bing is getting this many longbeans every day. The asparagus project is coming along swimmingly. The out of town garden project has hit a speedbump because the cows figured out how to knock down the barbed wire fence we put around it.
