Garden Update

Today is the summer solstice, and it certainly feels that summer is upon us in the southwest. That means many of my cold weather plants are winding down. I’ve bid adieu to my lettuce and most of the kale, and the snow peas seem to be wrapping things up.  At the same time, the tomatoes are gearing up as are the green beans, cucumbers, yellow squash, cantaloupe and watermelon. I just have to mention that the monster tomato volunteer in the cantaloupe patch is covered  in grape-like green tomatoes. I surmise this volunteer is a grape tomato plant while the other volunteers have yet to produce. And, this is the first year to plant corn, and today I spied a baby ear. So far, the summer veggies are on their way to a bountiful future.
