Lazy Days of Summer

The garden is in the lazy days of summer these days. Actually, the garden is super busy, but I’m not, and that is a good thing. The garden seems to be progressing well and has been generally incident free lately. Everything is growing nicely, the banana squash are poised to take over, and we have more tomatoes on the vine than is typical for this time of year, even though most of the plants were topped by deer.

We have had small harvests of most things so far but I expect that to change in a few weeks. Last weekend I harvested almost 8 pounds of the red creole onions. They are hanging out under the house where it is a bit cooler and dry. The weather forecast shows a good probability of rain so the temperatures have moderated some.

For the next few weeks I guess I’ll just watch and wait while fixing the occasional irrigation leak.
