Time

Well, we’ve been tied up lately.  On the road, helping family, catching up back home.  Summer’s flying by.  The peas in the garden are developing nicely.  The remnants of Barry brought some much needed water to the area, and the garden and other plants really perked up.  I mulched the garden with grass clippings before hitting the road.  It seemed to help greatly – holding in moisture, hindering weed growth, and I suspect it also leeched out vital nutrients to the soil.  The spindly tomatoes look better, though not huge.  The beets are progressing and the squash left their doldrums and awoke.  So, hopefully within a few weeks, we’ll start harvesting peas.  Nothing like fresh summer produce.

Solo Deo Gloria,

    Our summer garden has about overwhelmed us with its’ bounty. Though we eat zucchini at practically every meal, we still have a table covered with it plus tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, etc. I’m guessing our Texas vegetable season starts a little earlier than your Virginia season does?

    We’re really enjoying it, though. I think Zucchini bread is on the docket tomorrow–lots and lots of zucchini bread!

    Yep, it certainly does. And the complexities of weather makes it even more different. Here, I don’t know if I’ll get any squash. The summers tend to turn very dry here. Last summer, I lost all my pumpkins, about 3 dozen, a good many yellow squash and as many zucchini. We pulled much of our squash early to get a more tender one.
