Hello, just popping in to say hi and update you on how the garden is growing this summer! As most of you know, a heat wave has hit all of us, and it’s been a challenge to keep flowers and the gardens going.
The green bean harvest is about over for the first go-round, and I have canned what I need for the winter months to come. The next two rows of beans that I will harvest will be for just eating and sharing with neighbors and friends. I will have to water quite heavily to keep them going, but they are full of blooms.
The cabbage is done, and they were very nice despite the warm temperatures. Freezer coleslaw was made and lots of grilled, steamed and fried cabbage, as well as just plain slaw, was enjoyed. I cut the last of it this morning and will miss it when they are gone. The tomato plants are loaded and I have have cut some tops off of the top to feed the lower stems of the plants.
The potatoes are drying down, and I have dug a few hills of red ones and they are very nice. Still plenty of things to come: cucumbers, onions, banana and green peppers and carrots. The sweet corn should be ready soon, so I will have my hands full for some time. Hope you are enjoying your garden and flowers this year and stay cool.
