After some early season enthusiasm, things have quieted down a little bit on the posting side. Summers are never as relaxed and full of free time as we’d like, and the best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley … in any case, summer is slowly (but too quickly) creeping toward fall, and we’ll soon start to see some new transitions in the garden plot. Another sowing of radishes, beets and lettuce last week, and we’ll try to get some fall chard and spinach in soon. Even though they are from a month ago now, here was the garden back in mid-July — this photo looks downright quaint compared to the current jungle of mid-August abundance.
This shot of our auxiliary plot gives you an idea of what a mess the squash and tomatoes have become … despite the crowding, great production and very little disease so far.
Our squash looked so cute and innocent then. Appearances can be deceiving (does anybody want some squash?)
And much to Brendan’s delight, the corn grew (at least 1.5 stalks did) and we managed 3 whole ears of corn.
Early fall garden photos coming soon!
