A curious summer in the (vegetable) garden

I just now have a squash developing in my vegetable garden.  The pole beans are finally flowering.  But wait, it's early August?

Thankfully, I've been harvesting and putting up tomatoes since mid-July (also late!)

I'm also harvesting some chard and beet greens, and making pesto with both parsley and basil, hooray, and have some summer-sown cilantro, too.

A strange summer for veggies, to be sure.

  1. I feel better, Lisa! Our garden is following the exact same schedule! The beans are so late this year, as is the squash. We've had a couple cucumbers, but the big flush is still to come. Thankfully, the tomatoes have been ripening--not too many yet for storing, but enough to keep us happy. What an odd summer!

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
