Feeling Better

Temps have been outrageous since I got back, so any time spent in the garden is before breakfast or after dinner.  I am feeling less stressed about the garden now that I've had time to yank the bolted parsley, broccoli and lettuce, pull the weeds, and trellis the vines.
See, it looks much less overgrown!
The empty spot is where the garlic and onions were.  I'll be starting my seeds soon for the fall/winter garden and it's nice to have a spot to transplant them.
I still have some cabbages I need to pick, but this bed looks so much better without the broccoli!
Once the weeds were gone, it was easier to see what needed harvesting.  Several types of tomatoes, including a Black Krim, Romas, Arkansas Traveler, and the cherries... carrots, green beens, pepperoncini, jalapenos, and some herbs for dehydrating, including stevia, lemon verbena, and lemon balm.  Not a bad day's haul!

  1. Wow, looks great!! I hear you about the heat. It's so hard to get motivated to do any work when it's so hot! I have some maintenance stuff to catch up on too. I'm growing stevia for the first time this year, can't wait to try it!
