Fruits of our labor

As you can see above the fruiting has started. We are already harvesting Zukes and summer squash. The pumpkins and spaghetti squash are doing well also. The cukes not so much, I'm still not sure if they are going to produce. The Roma are a little smaller than I thought but it has been an off season.

The Flowers are loving this weather, they are just going crazy. All in all the yard is looking pretty good considering the interesting summer weather.

Our very wet & neglected garden

As we all know it has been freakishly wet this summer. Things are a little slow to grow but they are getting there. As you can see some of the squash, cherry & roma tomatoes are fruiting.

We do have an abundance of lettuce and blueberries. We had to drape the blueberries with some garden cloth because a flock of Bluejays showed up and was eating all the blueberries. THE REBELS

All the veggies are starting to take off. The beans are growing tall, the squash are learning to climb the trellis and the radish are on the second seeding. The beets & carrots are not quite ready but they are working on it. The herbs have already had a clipping but are giving out more and more each day

The flowers have gone a little wild but that is ok they are still very pretty.

Rain, Rain, what to do with the Rain

Well as everyone knows it has been raining just about every day since the beginning of June. The garden is a little water logged. I haven't lost anything yet but things aren't growing as fast or as well as they usually do. I expect that once the sun makes an appearance things will start to pick up. We have been able to harvest some radishes, tons of lettuce and some of the herbs but my Early Girl tomatoes have yet to produce anything. They are flowering but no toms yet. So far this is how things look. I also updated the slides on the side.
