Our garden has exploded over these past few weeks! It's full of blossoms and new growth, and it is amazing to watch it change every day.
We normally have fairly mild summers, but this year it has been quite warm. Most days in the past couple weeks have been over 90 degrees F, and I have found that now, instead of battling slugs and powdery mildew, we have new issues. Namely aphids, and something that is harming our squash. We have already gotten quite a few zucchini off of our plants, but we also have several types of winter squash and cucumbers planted as well. We keep getting fruit that starts to grow and then begins to rot almost as soon as it forms. I am guessing we have some sort of a soil fungus, but haven't yet had time to investigate it further. Any thoughts?
So, what are we growing? We are currently harvesting blackberries, basil, heirloom tomatoes, hot peppers, zucchini, strawberries, and kale. We are eagerly awaiting grapes, green beans, beets, potatoes and winter squash.
More than anything, I like to sit outside and watch the bees. At any point on a sunny day, we will have 20-30 bees in our tiny garden. They are so busy and so very beautiful.
