I took these pictures on Tuesday. It’s amazing to see how well the Grocery Row Gardens are performing.
We have lots of peppers:
These yard-long beans are outside the gardens proper, but they are still beautiful:
This area of black-eyed peas and Sudan/sorghum grass is probably going to be turned into Grocery Row Gardens this fall.
And now the actual gardens:
Some of the paths are more consumed than others. Below you’ll see the summer squashes encroaching on the pathways.
The variegated canna lilies are particularly beautiful right now.
Some of the Cucuzza squash are now climbing into the oaks.
Here the paths are getting even thinner:
The amaranth look amazing right now.
This is supposed to be a path but the Everglades tomatoes ate it.
On the right (below) we have Tithonia diversifolia getting tall. On the left, “Burgundy” okra.
One of the beds has some “Kakai” squash ripening in it beneath the cassava. This is a hull-less pumpkin seed variety we’re trying for the first time.
There is a lot of life in the system, despite the endless rain.
I have now put my new book on the system up for pre-order if you are interested.
