All my garlic is now hanging and curing in the greenhouse. There is not nearly as much as I would have wished, but I say that every year. It is true every year.

Definitely feeling like summer here, with highs to be in the 90s all week. Tomatoes are just starting to set fruit--hopefully the heat won't slow them down. I still have one more drip irrigation are to get set up, then we should be able to not worry much about watering.

I have way more lettuce than I know what to do with. Gave some to my sister but she could only take so much. Have to give some to friends. May let some bolt, although I don't know what kind it is. It filled my bed well, and tastes good!
Summer veggie time!
Thomas75 said:Well the few Tomato plants (about 12) that survived our unbelievable rain storms are producing beautiful fruit every day now. Only 6 of my Bell pepper plants appear they will make it, that is out of 40 plants that I started with. Lost all of my Okra, all of my Jalapeno plants and almost all of my Corn. So for my “summer” garden that is about it, however it’s almost time for the Fall planting, yeah.
mom2goldens said:Temps here have gotten so warm that I think my peas are done (before ever getting a single pea). However, we love pea shoots, so may harvest them for our salads.
I lost 2 huge Colorado Spruce trees in my beds this spring (wind literally blew them over). So--I now have a huge sunny spot in my yard that I need to plan for. I'm contemplating moving my veggie garden to that area next year, as the area it's currently in is not getting enough sun due to the big trees around that area. Decisions, decisions........

and I'm afraid I just don't "get" using the pea tendrils for any purpose...
lovesblooms said:I'd never heard of hypertendril peas. They do look like fun.
Yes, peas were a great harvest this year. After the first year I planted peas three years ago I was hooked. They've never failed to produce plenty. This year I planted twice as much as usual, and got maybe three gallons of peas.
