This week we gave our veggies another deep soak of water to encourages the plants to produce deeper roots. We gave the plants a foliar spray of seaweed and finished the compost layer of mulch to fertilize and increase water retention. Expect more mandalas of garden abundance. This week we harvested the Turkish Pumpkin Eggplants, red long beans (makes a nice garden makeover), peppers, herbs and more tomatoes. The purple sweet potatoes, tumeric, sunchokes, southern peas and warm season greens like Egyptian spinach (molokhia), chaya spinach, are really taking off. We planted more peanuts and dry beans and inoculated the corn with a liquid spores of the fungus Huitlocoche. Learn more here about the experiment we are trying.
