The garden is looking surreal or so-real with growth? This last Saturday at the teaching gardens @zilkerbotanicalgarden we planted more purple sweet potato slips that Angel @forage.atx grew at home using the soil method. We planted them in a shady area in a new bed because the soil doesn't have to be super fertilized or established. We also direct seeded okra in this area. Next week we will be planting more heat loving varieties including the red noodle beans, purple hull peas and malabar spinach.
🌽 Milpa/Three Sisters update: We are already getting squash fruits and the pole beans are coming up quick. Thanks to the fish emulsion fertilizer and we transplanted squash early so we hope that we get fruits before the Squash Vine Borers start to burrow.
