The garden at the shoreline is coming along just fine. Marketmore cucumbers, planted from seed and surrounded by black plastic, are getting their true leaves. I thinned the number of plants back so there are about 5-7 plants per hill.
There are at least five different types of greens in this year's garden. Here's the kale, nicely up, and already large enough to top a frittata with kale and feta cheese. Other greens that are in the garden are Little Cos Romaine, Jericho Romaine, Burpee spinach, red leaf lettuce, and herbs like dill and basil.
A lot of this year's garden was planted from seeds and, so far, only one packet of seed, one that was dated 2009, refused to germinate.
