I planted three Eel River Muskmelon seedlings (90-100 days) that were succession sown over the last 2-6 weeks in the sides of the pile and scattered a motley crew of seeds (Early Silverline, Noir des Carmes, Green Nutmeg, Savor Charentais, all 75-80 days) over the top and watered them in. They are all under row cover, hoping they will get enough sun and the heap will provide lots of juicy heirloom melons come August and September.
One container was also planted for the kennel using 2/3's potting mix, 1/3 compost and 1 1/2 cups Azomite. Black plastic mulch and row covers are being used to provide warmth and to keep the bugs at bay.
Bean varieties sown today:
- Fin de Bagnol Shoestring, Bush
- Empress Snap, Bush
- Hutterite Soup Bean, Bush
- Sultan's Golden Crescent, Pole
- Pencil Pod Wax, Pole
