What I think might help that along is, yesterday I planted more cucumbers and beans. Since it is very hot here (predicted at 107 today), I will need to water several times a day...to keep the ground from drying out. Once they get established in a week or two, I can cut it back a bit.
Hopefully, when the new plants come up, it will fill in the bare spots and keep the water from evaporating so quickly. That's the plan at least.
There is a bare spot in the middle of the plants. This is where I planted some green beans (bush) and some soy beans. That is edimame to you sushi nuts.
As you look to the top of this picture, on the right is the black beans, cucumbers on the left. Both of which I planted more. Filling in the bare spots and making new rows.
In seven to fourteen days, I should be seeing evidence of my labor. Actually...I hope to see something way before then.
The reason being, I soaked the bean seeds for a few hours to kick start the process. The last time I did this, it took three days to show "green".
I planted some lemon cucumbers because BFF loves them, and some English cucumbers. They have thinner skin and little or no seeds. Easier to digest. Cucumber sandwiches anyone? Or how about little cucumber 'cups' with seafood salad inside?
Anyway...sounds yummy to me! Next...salad greens! My late summer planting continues.
