Monday Garden Club

Monday again, and a very hot and sticky Monday at that.  It is July after all, but it's always a little annoying when the weather people on the news say it's so hot out that using a fan in the house won't even help. Ugh!  Since we have no air conditioning, we have the fans cranked up, but with the breeze outside and our close proximity to the big Lake (Mother Nature's air conditioner for those of us who live with in 10 miles of it.) it's not quite as bad as it could be.

With regards to the garden, I'm just glad it's still growing after a whole week of neglect.  I have been sick for almost an entire week, making garden work the last thing I feel like doing.  I went out a few times to pick some broccoli, peas, and kohlrabi, but absolutely zero weeding has been done. Eek!



Wax Beans

San Marzano tomatoes

Silvery tomatoes


And of course my garden helper who just finished a tour of the raspberry patch, AKA lunch.

Cute raspberry picker. :)
Your stuff looks fantastic! So, since I'm about 3-4 weeks behind you, I should start getting tomatoes and broccoli soon. Yay!

Your garden still looks amazing!! You are going to have quite the harvest. I'm checking out how you spread things out so that I will hopefully do a better job next year. It is downright painful trying to get through the zucchini & yellow squash. Glad to hear that you're feeling better.
