Deer, the love those bean tops! Thankfully beans usually recover.

July 2nd and my first harvest (well not really if you count the handful of strawberries I got and 4 cherry tomatoes). It is small in comparison to some of yours but with our cooler than average spring, I am not complaining. Lots more flowers on everything, so more to come! Had to thin out the 2 oni ok and so I will put them in a cold summer salad.

More blackberries, my wife said she canned them whole in ultra light syrup because "you don't need all that sugar". I think we have enough blackberries put up for the year now. Elderberries are looking like they are next, she has silicone molds for gummies.

I should have planted some musk melon and cantaloupe. It would have been a good year for it. Oh well there's always next year.

A gardeners favorite saying...🤣

Been so dry here for June that our blackberries were just dry nubs! Elderberries are full of tiny berries and hope I'll get a decent crop...if they draw enough moisture. They grow near lower, moisture sites, so hopeful! May have to help mother nature this year.😁mine are wild patches.

😁 That's what I call a deep watering!

After all the trouble these two rows of blue lake green beans gave me. This is a pleasing sight. Sowing shallow in a trench seems to be the key for blue lake. They are finally starting to send up flower stems.

Squash has gone plum nutty bat crazy. Just think if I fertilized it? The thought frightens me. 8' between rows they say 🙄 they might want to rethink that spacing. What in the world we gonna do with all this squash? It's a good thing National Sneak Some Zucchini On To Your Neighbors Porch day is coming up soon. My neighbors may get more than just zucchini, this year.

Good day! I have never had zucchini. If they are like cucumbers or pickles, no thank you. If they are like pumpkins, I might give it a try.

Love those huge rows of banana peppers. Don't eat the but surely look good. Waiting to finish errands so I can go and do some grass removal . :th

Zucchini is really good, same with summer squash. But butternut squash is delicious. Acorn squash (winter squash) is extra delicious baked in the late fall early winter.
