Tonight, I pulled some of the cherry belle radishes that we planted at the end of July.  I also pulled a hakurei turnip that has been in garden bed number four since I planted them in April.  Unfortunately, the turnip isn’t good; when left in the ground too long, they become woody and inedible.  Some of the radishes may not produce usable roots because the weather in August was too hot at times.


We also picked some more tomatillos — enough to finish filling the bowl in this post from last week — and a few beans, blackberries, and okra.

We haven’t received much rain lately, so I checked the garden beds with my moisture meter.  I watered bed four because it was quite dry.  I then spread some slug bait in and around that garden bed as I’ve seen damage on my cabbages that looks like it was caused by slugs.
