Back to the Garden

July 26, 2009

We haven’t been spared by the unseasonable and unwanted rain, but our crops are mostly unaffected. I think it’s partly because of our sandy soil and our planting late in the season. We will have a late harvest for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and other mid-summer treats, but we’re fortunate not to have bottom rot or worse fates.

We’re looking forward to picking more of our veggies, including string beans, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, peppers and later-summer tomatoes. We’ve enjoyed a lot of lettuces, greens (collards and kale), arugula, broccoli, turnips, peas and blueberries. It’s a great feeling to use crops from just outside our door, and it saves a lot of money, too.
