So far, the good news is that things are growing. Since my last update I've planted my winter squash, zucchini, and beans (wax and soup), and all of them are practically leaping out of the ground. The only thing I'm worried about is the time it's taking for everything to grow. I'm using my radishes as a baseline -- they should only take about 30 days, but I definitely planted them over 30 days ago and they look only half-grown. So I'm thinking that maybe adding a good amount of organic matter next year will help speed that up, and maybe making sure to properly add fertilizer at the right times this year.
The spinach had started to grow big enough that I needed to pick some of the leaves. The only problem is that I should have planted more spinach than I did, because the amount of leaves that resulted is only enough for one salad. Oh well -- there'll be plenty more when I do my fall spinach crop planting. So next year: plant more, plant sooner!
Everything else is looking great and I'm planning to put in the tomatoes and peppers next weekend, and plant my cucumber seeds this week -- I have to pick up another packet.
