Warmer temperatures returned this week and the garden responded. Deer are now coming into the garden and have eaten most of the bush bean foliage. The plants are still alive, so hopefully will continue to produce. Some of the Kentucky Wonder pole bean foliage was also eaten. I am hoping a strategic placement of a wheelbarrow will keep the trellis out of reach in the future.
Here are some of the harvests this past week:
|Beans and Cukes|
|Dark Norland Potatoes|
|Mixed Paste Tomatoes|
|Kale, Summer Squash, and Beans|
|Yet More Summer Squash|
Still waiting for the heavy harvests of beans and tomatoes. We've been eating fresh, but not enough has accumulated to begin canning yet. It looks like September will be busy.
Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
