Even though the weather is crummy right now, considering that we are approaching the middle of the month of July, the vegetable garden is looking beautiful. We had enough warm weather last week to spur it on, and the dampness of the weather seems to be doing the plants good. Everything is vert vert vert. Today's weather looks pretty nasty, by the way.
Le jardin vu à travers un rideau de petits artichauts — the garden throught a curtain of little artichokes
If we get a few more sunny, warm days this month and next, 2014 may be a banner year for the vegetable garden.
Tomato plants — quite a few of them, of several varieties
I don't take a lot of credit for the garden, especially this year. All I have done is the tilling. Walt has grown plants from seed, decided where to plant them, put them in the ground, and watered and weeded for weeks now. My job is just to make lunch. I hope to be cooking soon with tomatoes, eggplants, corn, beans, chard, and cucumbers that we've got growing.
