I have to start by apologizing to all my friends who live in drought country, since we've had rain on and off for weeks here. Which is both good and bad, when it comes to the garden. Things are growing well, including the weeds, of course.
This is what it looks like now:
|The view from outside my back door.|
|The left side of the garden, including a new strip of plastic mulch.|
|These are soybeans on the left and potatoes on the right. They seem to be trying to meet in the middle. In the background you can see squash and beans, ditto.|
|A lovely head of broccoli ready to be harvested.|
|Tomatoes and eggplant. Those yellow leaves on the eggplant mean its not happy about the lack of sun and heat.|
|More tomatoes. They have the beginning of blight because of the constant rain. Sigh.|
|I love bright red lettuce! (Ignore the weeds.)|
How is your garden (actual or metaphorical) growing this summer? I'd really like to know.
Also, have a cute frog sitting on a big lily pad in the garden pond.
