The pod peas are giving us some nice edible pods now! Success!
The snap peas finally have flowers, but still no pods. These plants are now at 120 days (maturity date on the packet is 72 days).
The cauliflower plants are as leafy as ever, with lots of caterpillar holes but no sign of florets.
I was about to say the same of the broccoli, until I saw a tiny little flower starting in one of the plants. There is hope.
The tomato is covered with these promising fruits, which are hard as rocks. I’ve brought a few inside, but they show no sign of ripening.
The next challenge will be the upcoming freeze. The overnight lows are predicted to fall below freezing for at least two days, although I expect it to be four. I’ve got enough sheets to cover all the small plants, but the large citrus trees are going to have to tough it out.The humans and beasts will all be huddling for warmth inside. We’re not used to freezing temperatures!
Hope you all have a nice weekend and stay warm!
