Where the Cultivated Things Are

6 Jul

Two posts in one day? I imagine you’re saying to yourself right now, “This guy must be crazy, thinking I have time to read all of his rambling blither!” I didn’t manage to take photos of the jam from that last post until tonight, because we were busy giving the Wonderpup’s haircut some much needed touching up, and after putting our second application of organic calcium-rich foliar spray on this evening, I realized it’d been over a week since I wrote about the garden, and we’re headed off to the flyover state where Panda comes from (as opposed to the flyover state that I come from that we’ve already visited twice this summer) this weekend, so I doubt there’ll be another garden update forthcoming until sometime around the middle of the month.

But because I like to keep this thing multimedia-ish, the photo to the left is one I found that’s Creative Commons licensed (Courtesy of WFIU in Indiana).

These went into the same commercially-available seed-starting medium as the hot and sweet peppers (same tray, in fact, since there was still room).

Also, one of our Jalapeno plants has popped its little head up above the soil! Something’s working about what we’re doing! That tiny little sprout already has me thinking about the salsa we want to make this summer…
