Beautiful flowers! And I want to eat your bok choi right off the page!!

:cold: I'm so glad I covered my maters last night. It's 37 degrees right now. Probably was even colder a few hours ago. I personally love it! But my maters... not so much. I doubt that the agribon was enough to protect the mater flowers. Oh well, there will be more!

Tonight is the big experiment, leaving everything out all night. I have plenty of agribon. Maters can’t grow in the house forever.

AND IT IS JULY 9TH! we better have a nice long warm fall, or... or.... well, there isn't really anything I can do about it, but I will not be happy, I can tell you that.
My flower beds had yet to bloom. the only flowers I have are new ones I put in this past month. The lilac bushes are blooming so that is nice...

They should be OK. I think we're finally into a somewhat summer season.

Your garden looks great. Are those ornamental hops or the kind you can ferment?

Thanks TillerBee. They are cascade hops for brewing. We planted them 30+ years ago when my husband was into home brewing. I don't water them or anything, they just keep coming back like a weed. Now that he is retired, he makes rumblings about brewing again, so he may use them one of these days.

In the meantime, they make create table decorations in the fall.

I have my fingers crossed for you.

I expect temps to drop to the high 30s again tonight at my house (based on Leadville forecast). The mater plants can survive that no trouble. But the flowers will become sterile.

35 as yesterday's low does not surprise me, it was a bit chilly.
This morning it only dropped to 40. Still too cool for veggie flowers to remain viable.
But great sleeping temperature! :sleeping:

:coffee screen:

Not funny actually... it's crazy that the night time temps (for some of us) are not yet warm enough in mid July for flowering veggies.

But as I mentioned in a different post, it is possible that night time temps will never stay above 50-55 for a portion of pinecam land this summer. Especially those of us above 9000 feet.

If I were in your shoes I'd put them out anyway and hand pollinate (lightly squeeze each blossom and then tickle inside each with a small brush or Q-tip after they open). If stimulated daily as soon as you see any yellow of the flower, you are likely to be able to get a percentage of them pollinated.

Each blossom has both male & female parts. But they need help getting the parts to touch each other.

Is anyone having an issue with yellow spots on your green bean leaves and it’s spreading to other veggies? I’m growing in greenhouse raised bed
