Since a picture is worth a thousand words here is a glimpse beyond my garden gate …
Today we are picking lots of green beans, Kirby cucumbers and Abraham Darby roses.
The corn is definitely “knee high by the fourth of July”.
The squash is a little too small to pick, but we have a dozen plants happily growing. We should be overrun soon! Of course I spot a tiny bit of powdery mildew so maybe not!
I think eggplant is the most gorgeous veggie in the garden.
These are the reasons we compost all year long … literally the fruits of our labors. Happy gardening! Happy summer!
