We have acorn squash and a mystery squash that are thriving, lots of green tomatoes (3 varieties of heirlooms), raspberries just starting to change color, blackberries that will be ready soon, corn, serranos, jalapenos, a mystery yellow pepper plant, hops starting to flower and grapes that we are anxiously awaiting.
We have had some gardening disappointments this year, like our pickling cucumbers that look straggly and our bush beans that are growing one bean per plant. Most of our potato plants mysteriously died before they even flowered. As I was cleaning them up the other day, we decided to dig around, and found quite a few lovely potatoes that had somehow managed to grow. And they were delicious!
We have been really enjoying watching our pollinator friends work in our garden. I know that bee populations across the United States have been on the decline, but the bees sure seem to be thriving in our yard!
