July Garden

IMG_8088 An unusually cool and foggy morning for July.  It’s been very pleasant this whole week.  Most of our garden is doing pretty damn good with the exception of the cucurbits.  The straw mulching provides perfect hiding places for squash bugs and I’ve not kept up on spraying and egg squishing.

We planted a second round of sweet corn the first week of July.  The sweet potato rounds are starting to cascade vine out of the rings and the bean arches are doing a half way decent job.  

Second planting of sweet corn.

Last of the spring cabbage.

The last of the spring cabbage.

Riley is all feet, legs and a fat head.

Riley is all feet, leg and head.  She’s seven months old and nary a brain cell between the ears.  She’s sweet and all puppy.  Her size makes me forget that she’s still just a baby.

Potatoes are ready to be dug in the foreground.  The bean arches in the back were moved this year.  half planted with Kentucky wonder and the other with a speckled drying bean that I can't recall.  It's not doing all that well.

    After a brutally cold winter we are in a mild summer so far. More ammunition for those global warming conspiracy believers.
