The three H's that I hate about living in the mid-Atlanti. Hazy - Hot - Humid. Bah. We are having to water daily, as it hasn't rained in what seems like weeks. The farmers must be beside themselves.
Heres some pictures I took of our garden last week:
Above, is the outer row of squashes, they are doing pretty good, we are able to have a squash medley for dinner every other day or so. (Squashes are sliced and just sauteed in EVOO, seasoned with salt and pepper).
Above,6 of my tomatoes. I planted them in early may hoping that they won't ripen until mid to late July. Still have my fingers crossed. It would be tragic if a bunch ripen while we are in Europe.
Above, I harvested the last of the salad greens and beets. The greens did really well, the beets not so much. I have planted the box with Okra which should mature in mid to late August. The pole beans on the left trellis have made it to the top, and are beginning to blossom, they will probably produce while we are gone unfortunately, but they will continue to until almost first frost. In the back ground, the Cucumbers are about 1/2 way up their trellis, and are beginning to put out. At the bottom right, the purple stuff is lavender, it is a great attractor of pollenating insects.
Above is a calabasas squash,, you have to pick them young or they are tasteless and seedy.
THis is an Armenian Cuke. this was taken on the 19th of June, I harvested it yesterday and it was over a foot long.
Above, a bouquet of zucchini blossoms, I thought this was a good picture.
6/19. One of my tomato plants.
Anyway, I just found this community. I hope you liked the pictures.
