How time flies....

Where oh, where does the time go??? Here it is August 1 already- and although I try not to complain, we are having the lousiest summer weather on the face of the planet! The tomatoes are barely setting on- a few are about walnut size- hopefully we will have a long warm fall, or the garden will be a bust this year!
    That's not exactly true... we had a bumper crop of snow peas, when they finally got started. The March seeding resulted in moldy seeds that never sprouted as the soil was just way too cold and wet. The May seeding grew quickly, then went from blossom to huge pods in two weeks!

The last of the snow peas which will be in a salad tonight!

The carrots are performing admirably, and the second seeding of YaYa's are coming along nicely, but some little critter is eating the tops . Now it's time to think about planting the fall crop of beets, parsnips, late letettuces, and winter squash... I wonder if I'll bother? The cucumbers are just now beginning to flower- on the 1st of August! So much for global warming! At least the good old reliable zucchini type squash plants are producing! I planted Cocozelles this year... the bees love the blossoms! I love them, too- especially stuffed with goat cheese mixed with chopped peaches and a little fresh basil!

The garden has been full of pollinators this summer!
