8.13.18 // my favorite daily garden chore right now is searching my first planting of beans for dry pods, beans have definitely been my favorite crop this year 🌿
2 • our healthiest potato plants so far this year! I haven't mounded any of the potatoes I've grown, still don't know if it is or isn't necessary. My understanding is that there are both determinate & indeterminate types of potatoes.. 3 • pretty sure this cutie is a mydas fly, it also reminds me of a black soldier fly
4 • scarlet runner beans coming along. grew them pretty unsuccessfully last year, hoping they will be more productive this year with my later planting date.
5 • look at these beauties, almost ready for eating!
6 • well, my red Russian kale that had recovered from round one of pests has fell the victim of harlequin beetles & caterpillars. The wasps are back at it again though, so maybe it will pull through!
