Vegetable garden re-haul

Squash vine borers ate the zucchini plant from the inside out, the parsley went to seed, and we finally harvested the crop of tiny onions. We figured it’s late to plant, but we might as well try! Thanks to volunteering and learning from the Green Corn Project, who use John Jeavons‘ biointensive method, we (er…BT) have been double-digging. It is hard work, and I think BT has broken 2 or 3 spading forks in the process. The good news is our pepper seedlings– Anaheim and aji flor — are in the ground now. I’m hoping to throw some pole beans in next to the fence so they have something to climb on, and some habaneros, and whatever else looks good.
There are white-winged dove eggshells all over the yard, it seems. Somehow this one impaled itself on one of the irises out front. Interesting.
