Garden report


The heat is back and the ’maters (Solanum lycopersicum) are doing their thing!

Meanwhile, the epazote (Dysphania ambrosioides, formerly Chenopodium ambrosioides) in the back yard isn’t getting enough sun, so it’s shooting up towards the heavens (excuse my lame sense of poetics) without making big leaves. Bummer.


  1. Maureen Meyers says:

    Can you cut it down some, and force it to create shoots?

  2. Sammy says:

    I’m thinking: yes. I did weeding & some transplanting today. I’ll nip it back some tomorrow!

  3. kayak woman says:

    On the old Green Acres TV show it was something like “shoosting up to the sky”.
