July in the Garden
How’s your garden growing?
I had all but decided to throw in the towel after the heat and wind blasted through the East coast two weeks ago, leaving sad little plants in its wake. Just in the nick of time came the respite and I spent a cool and practically mosquito free morning salvaging what was left.
The cucs are about to go nuts! This first-of-the-season beauty will be lunch tomorrow.
The beans didn’t fare as well with the heat but it looks like they may still be going for round two.
Something is enjoying my Cherokee Purple’s as much as I am!
Can a bird do this?
No hope for the summer squash…
…but the Green Zebra’s are making a comeback after a bad case of Blossom-End Rot and losing their stake to the storm.
The kale, Red Russian and Lacinato, is sort of hanging in there.
I was skeptical about growing carrots,
and now they are one of my favorite things to harvest!
