The potager in mid-July has grrroooooowwn to great heights. Being accustomed to zealous growth Charlie made the vine trellises especially tall.
They layout changes not only from year to year but also throughout the growing season as some crops become rapid producers and others wear out in the summer heat.
We could take a little stroll down the lanes. It’s difficult to get between some of the beds because the growth is so thick. Spiders spin webs across the paths nightly so I wave my hands in front of my face while walking through so I don’t get an eyeful of sticky silk.
Not only is the foliage rich but the harvest is plentiful.
The cucumbers have been plentiful this year (unlike last year’s pitiful crop) and beautifully shaped.
I’m soooo happy this is Charlie’s project not only because he loves growing his veg but also at this the time of the summer the grasshoppers (large high-jumping ones) vault around the yard which kind of freaks me out. (I know, I’m such a girl.)
