Because I am too whipped to write much, and have a lot of photos to share.

There was once a path running in betwixt these radishes and tomatoes. It is long gone.

This tomato is now bigger than my fist. Oh, dreamy.

The corn tassles started peeking out a few days ago:

Pumpkins are absolutely taking everything over. They’ve invaded the tomato patch and will soon spawn hundreds of fruit. There’s one about as big as my head now.

In a matter of only a few days, this odd disease that makes the leaves look like mosaics has pretty much destroyed my primary cucumber plant. Luckily, there are about eight other plants that have fruit on the vines, but I suspect this will infect them, too.

Here’s what it looked like a few days ago:

This is what it looked like yesterday:

The bean trellis is all a-flower.

And occasionally has visitors that are not Japanese beetles, although this little guy wasn’t much bigger than they are.

This little kohlrabi plant looks like it’s getting close to ripe – yay!

The rainbow Swiss chard is just lovely… but I still can’t quite get used to the flavor. Reminds me too much of beets.

Despite blight wiping out a great majority of the tomato plants’ leaves on about a third of the plants, happily, they are all continuing to produce fruit in copious amounts.

I have two full bales of straw to get down as mulch. The heat has made me lazier than usual, though.

Most of the first batch of lettuce is starting to bolt and grow bitter. Alas. But it’s still pretty.

A massive storm blew through yesterday, hammering everything with heavy winds and torrential rain. In its wake, though, there was about a half hour of sunlight beaming into the ominous clouds and creating a gorgeous glow. Then, more storming.

In that brief respite between bouts of rain, I poked around the garden to see what damage had been done. I see this dragonfly around from time to time, and he was busy hunting whilst he could.

The variety of insects I find out there is a continual source of happiness.

The rain left everything sparkly and slaked.

But also, somewhat hammered and flattened.

Many of the tomato plants toppled over, stakes and all. I think all are ok – just even more cattywampus than they previously were. It’s not possible to walk in between the rows at this juncture.

It was quite a storm, and I was very happy to have escaped watering duty yet again. Score!

And now, for the collapsing.

  1. Those pics really make me want some fried green tomatoes.

      I suspect I could bring you a few green tomatoes to fry up. 😉 Also, do you want to be a pickle beta tester? If so, would you rather have spicy or regular bread and butters?
