A long stretch of days of cloud cover and rain. The growth spurt for the few hours the sun light was visible was phenomonal . Myceleum is abundant and fruiting bodies on cultured forest beds is a good sign. Many more flowering plants have shown themselves but so has the grass. The good sign is it's the clump grass and not that damned sod/bermuda left over still from the 50's. I am finding less and less of that.
The immediately important preparations will be for the pears and the dewberries. The winemaker is interested in experimenting with both. Harvest will be soon for the raw fruits and processed food like jams and pies.
Top field: Buckeye flowers turning. Nuts soon.
Layer Thing: All but the old sweet corn has taken well. Replaced old sweet corn with p/c corn transplants for now. Will have to chop/drop and re-mulch between veg/flowers.
Willy Nilly Sand Bed: one corn sprout, soybean spread well, two pumpkin, echinacea finally showing. Snake activity.
Shack deluxe: Strung one bean plant and one pumpkin plant. cleared excess radish. All experiencing wonderful growth spurt. Honey locust has spread it's limbs and the shack has great natural cover already. Note to craft more solar lights.
Tipi/Dead Dog Stump: Tatume doing well. Morning Glory spaced well so far. Beans are at about 30%. Lichen increase on stones.
Lower Field: No new projects yet. Path visible. Honey locusts and Dewberries spreading into niches. Churning good.
Drive bed 01:
Hectic: Corn, beans, and pumpkin showing well. Sumac going crazy. Pruned all stumps. Mowed out topper and dog bush. Will observe for regrowth.
Pods: Lettuce still stumped. Sunflowers showing. Radishes waning.
Tree Tiki: Pruned lower limbs. Pulled clump grass and put in bamboo guides around Morning Glories. Canine maintains interest in northern part of stump. No visible but olfactory sense of myceleum is strong.
Lonely Bean: Still lonely and growing slow.
Drivebeds 2/3: Slow dewberries. Sunflowers taking time. Need to prune trees.
Back: Passing glances. Wysteria is gone complete. No in depth exploration yet other than chasing canine. Canine has made friends with small neighborhood canines.
It's amazing how moving leaves around, worms, discarded human pulp products, vegetable remains, poop, peed on it, spilled beer, a couple of roaches, pocketfuls of seeds, some wood chunks with white stuff on them, electric company clearing crew remains, and a dog that keeps wanting to dig it all up too. He's helping until he gets thunderfaced.
