Saving some brassica seeds. The "something" that makes little yellow flowers in Spring, preceded by flower buds about 1" to 2" in diameter, that taste like broccoli, but "better than broccoli," just went out and stripped off a bagful of dried brown seedpods.

About time to save rapini seeds too.

And I've got a bunch of ragged jack kale gone to seed in the "pankar huyu," ready to strip out.

Hopefully I'll get enough for saving, plus sprouts this winter.

Watching it through the window - hoping for a pop up storm, so I won't have to go outside and water!

Pulled out some of the last of the parsnips, I'm just shocked at how green the tops have stayed in this heat. Going to hit 110 deg. tomorrow, 106 today. Had just about decided not to plant parsnips again but these pulled today were huge and beautiful, the test will be how well they taste after going so long in the heat. I'm going to roast them tonight. Pulled the shallots and have them drying and prepping the spot for okra, blackeyed peas and roma beans. The monsoon will hit in a couple of weeks and I need to have this all done and planted before the humidity rolls in.
