Here's a look at some of it on this first day of August.
Even though a lot of the asparagus patch has gone to ferns, I'm still harvesting fresh, crisp and crunchy, nice sized stalks about every other day. I've got as much as I want in the freezer and these smaller harvests give us just the right amount to eat fresh.
August 1st and the shell peas are just now ready for the first picking. Well, at least they're looking good. I'm thinking I'll start harvesting tomorrow.
Not having the field garden where I usually plant our beans, I put one eight foot row of green beans in one raised bed and another eight foot row of yellow wax beans in another bed. Methinks they really like growing in this new spot. This shot of one of the rows is a full four feet wide and loaded with blossoms and some itty-bitty beans.
Beets always grow well for me. These guys in the photo above look like they're ready to make an escape from the garden.
The Morning Glories planted around the tepee trellis haven't even reached the top of it yet, and I've spotted only one lonely bloom near the bottom. Plus, they're getting munched on by some creepy-crawly that is making lace out of their leaves. Poor Morning Glories.
Garlic is starting to show brown and dying leaves but isn't ready for harvest yet.
The slicing cukes are blooming like I've never seen before. There's even one little cuke doing its best to be the first one big enough to harvest. In a couple of weeks. (Can you spot it? Look to the left center in front of a yellow blossom.)
Here's the field garden we planted out to barley after we got no germination from the buckwheat we first seeded. We'll plow it under as a green manure before it goes to seed.
The Scarlet Runner Beans have finally reached the top of this garden trellis.
These vibrant red blooms will last almost until the frost kills the vines. So colorful.
That's all to show today. Hope your garden is giving you a bountiful harvest and you've been eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables from it.
