Spring Summary

Spring vegetable plants are being pulled to make way for fresh new plants. The squash was first to go, even though one squash was planted late and is still producing. The beans have gone to the compost. the big cucumber row has been pulled. These rows have been turned awaiting fall planting. This break in the action has been provided by a rain of over 1.5"!

Pickles are resting quietly in the cabinet. I have canned 76 jars of pickles; 10 gallons! The freezer is full of squash and beans. The summer plants are starting to yield their crops. Pictured above is the first two cantaloupes, all cut and ready to eat. Tomatoes are starting to ripen. Yesterday, we picked the first okra. Onward to summer!

Thanks! I am discovering that success in the garden means more work and less time to blog. No complaints, though!
