It’s that brutal time in central Alabama when the extreme heat slows everything down. Most of Veg Hill is nearly comatose, but not the okra! It just keeps popping up and producing. Every day it’s producing new pods ready to harvest, and we know from experience that okra produces better when it’s “well picked.”
Also: squash bugs, the height of melon season, superstar sunn hemp, coping with the heat, and the extension of the drip irrigation system to the West Bed and the Microclimate Bed.
