Garden update! July!

The summer heat is here, and the garden LOVES it!

The ‘pickle’ garden! Cucumbers and dill are going strong, climbing away…

The fence line of tomatoes are finally tied up, and look happy…no tomatoes yet, but soon we hope!

The summer and winter squash have popped, with the tomatoes trailing on the ground behind them…

The arugula went crazy, the lettuce…not so much. The herb garden behind is finally catching up.

Collard greens and kale (I think!)

Chard is doing well, parsnips behind are not sprouting as far as I can tell…oh well…

More chard, and spinach behind…

Now the beets and carrots that didn’t come up…(hence, the black weed block, so I can kill back the weeds and re-do…). And the beets and carrots behind that DID come up….small, but coming along!

Celery, cukes, green beans….peppers sorta failing, who knows why…(getting eaten, perhaps?)

The scarlet runner beans climbing, and beginning to create a haven of shade for our sandbox table !

Spicy pepper garden…

Potatoes are coming along!

The meat birds out on pasture, and loving it! I call them ‘little piggies with feathers’….

The side of the house garden, squash and tomatoes coming along….and a good bit of weeds too. 🙂

The littles, playing patiently while I weed for a few minutes…
