The July Update:
Tim wanted to use up the last of our old landscape mulch so we dressed everything up. It looked so nice that I climbed up on the garden shed roof for a photo op. I figured it would never look better than it does today.

|View from the neighbor's end|
|Bed #1 Resting after Peas. |
Carrots remaining and doing great.
I need to use them up so I can solarize this bed.
|Bed #2 Lettuce Dwindling|
Day old baby cucumbers down the middle
|Bed #3 Tomato/Pepper Jungle|
|The Sweet Peppers are growing|
But you can see the plants are suffering from the wet
with septorial spots and yellowing leaves
|The eggplants are HUGE and flowering|
|My Barlow Jap tomato plant has a dozen fruit set|
|Bed #4 Peas on their way out|
|Bed #5 Potatoes|
|Bed #6 Cucumbers and Bush Beans|
|The Beans are Beaning and the Cukes are Cuking|
There is a Squash Vine Borer Moth in my garden that is escaping capture!!!
Not Good. Not Good at All!
|The Herb Garden|
|The Summer Squash is producing nicely|
|The Cantaloupe are covered with flowers|
|But they've sustained significant damage from the Cucumber Beetles|
