Tied Up

The newly tied tomatoes all looked good this morning. I drove anchoring stakes in between the squash, cucumbers and melons too so that I won't damage their roots doing it later on. I want to try and get stuff growing vertically as much as possible - I think that will help them get more air circulation in the greenhouse.

Brussels sprouts - too hot in the greenhouse for them. We'll plant a few outside where the arugula is, once it's done. We bought 3 artichoke seedlings to plant outside and a couple of spaghetti squash for in the greenhouse.

Giant broccoli! The outdoor plants that are the same age are maybe 6" tall with a few measly leaves. The greenhouse plants are a foot tall with giant leaves. Hopefully they won't just go right to flower with the hot temps, though.

Avert your eyes if you don't want to feel extremely itchy.

Poultry lice on poor Mother Clucker. The white stuff at the bases of the feathers are their eggs, and you can see the lice all running for cover. BLEH!!! People can't get poultry lice but they still make me feel all squirmy.
