As we near the end of June, I thought I’d give you an update on our garden. These photos were taken June 15, so some things have developed since then.
Our raised garden is overflowing. We have an abundance of lettuce and plenty of onions. We lost the broccoli to green worms.
Some of our tomatoes have blight, but others are doing OK. We’re hoping for some ripe ones soon.
The cucumbers have spread up the side of the garden, clinging to the wire. We’ve gotten one ripe one off of the vines, and others are nearly ready for picking.

The peppers have blooms on them now. Here you can see the irrigation system Larry built doing its watering work.
We’ve been frustrated and thrilled at the results from the garden so far. I guess that’s part of being gardeners. We hope to learn from our missteps and try different things in the future.
I’m planning a salad of two types of lettuce, onions, cucumbers and blueberries for lunch today. The blueberries aren’t homegrown, but the rest of it will be.
I have been pondering the future of this blog and trying to find a way to be of better value to my readers. I’m taking next week off from blogging, but I’ll be back Monday, July 7. I hope to still visit others’ blogs and keep in touch with you.
If you’re gardening this year, how are your plots growing? And for all of you, how is your summer going so far?
