Red Hook Art Lot: Update August 16th, 2011
Garden thieves have stolen a total of 3 cantaloupes: 1 was outside the fence, the other two were inside the fence. There are 2 more fruits growing, but I doubt they’ll remain long enough to ripen fully. The upside to all this is that a hungry belly in need of a sweet delicious cantaloupe got what it deserved. Other good news: there were a handful of tomatoes and 3 more cucumbers ripe for the picking. Morning glories are also flowering along the fence, providing a little bit of color, though the vines still do look a bit sad and undernourished. Pinto bean vines are starting to produce as well and may provide enough dry beans for a bowl of chili. I’ll let the images do the rest of the talking.
