Hot and Damp

Red Norland are out of the earth. Their bed was a more like swamp than anything like tilth. They'll dry on the porch for a day or two. And they'll keep for about a month. Eggplant struggle, they haven't had enough sun. Summer Squash are of course blissfull.

Bush Beans don't like swampy conditions. Their leaves touch the ground, get splattered with mud, they turn yellow, succumb to rot and these failing leaves have to be regularly removed. The Early Bush Bean Venture has been successful. The Blue Lakes are sulking a little at the moment. More rain on the way.
