July 2016 Garden Report

As you can see, the garden is doing its job.  I'm not sure I've done mine, but considering I only planted two thirds of the garden, and we had two hail storms early in the season, we're going alright.  

We had a couple of rounds of snap peas - one of my favorite things.  I intended to plant more but I'm thankful for what we had, as they are so much better fresh than store-bought.   

Currently, we have a daily allowance of tomatoes - perfect for throwing in salad or fajitas.  There is nothing like a fresh-picked tomato.  Soon, we'll have some big ones ready for salsa and marinara.  The tomatillos are taking over - how did I not know this would happen?  Their lovely little lanterns are fun, though.

I wish I had planted corn, potatoes, onions.  They seem like no-brainers but since they don't come in pots, I did not get them done.  What should we plant next year??

Wow! That's impressive Katen - it looks like you're having a great garden this year! I gave up with veggies and switched to flowers - they're not very successful either - unless you're a rabbit or chipmunk - they're enjoying the heck out of the new plan! Keep up the good work - and beautiful pictures!
