The Garden As of July 15, 2013

Above: Bees at the allum.

Here's the biweekly report on the garden. The Northeast has had alternately very rainy days and very hot days. Most plants are loving it. Most people are not.

Green, green, green.

Above is the first box. Squash in the foreground, tomatoes in the background. There's spinach and turnips in there too, but the squash leaves are in the way.

And just this morning: some bad news. Do you see it?

That little green tomato branch has had its leaves eaten. Several branches on one plant were denuded. Not good! It's too destructive for a horn worm, so maybe it's a deer.

These tomatoes are OK. So far.

Squash and sweet potatoes.

The two smaller beds with even more tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.

Well, here's hoping that when I post again about the ol' garden, I'm not just taking pictures of a deer's lunch!

We'll close with some shots of flowers ....
