It's time for the comparison pictures of what my garden looked like a month ago on June 1st and now on July 1st. I was actually thinking there wouldn't be much of any difference at all, but there has been a little change. Just not as much as would/could/should be seen in a month's time.
Here are the raised beds a month ago.
And the raised beds yesterday. Certainly not as far along as I would expect them to be at this mid-summer point, but we have had more than our share of lack of sunshine and cool weather in the last thirty days.
The field garden was looking mostly bare on June 1st.
A little more to be seen here now, but many of the plants are still so small they don't show up in this picture.
A very bare, unplanted pumpkin patch on June 1st.
Although you'd never know it by this picture taken one month later, the whole pumpkin patch is planted. You'll have to believe me that the corn is starting to break through and one pumpkin seed (it's one of yours, A) has made it to daylight.
Sure hope we have a sunny, warm month of July to encourage some rapid growth out there. Maybe on August 1st I'll be able to say, "Wow, what a difference a month makes!"
