Unfortunately the garden was not as great as all that. It was another relatively unlucky year, with a 106 degree heatwave killing the blackberries again, a gopher devouring all my green beans and cucumbers, blight on the tomatoes, mislabeled peppers, carrots choked out by weeds and now I've even got poison ivy but can't identify where it is in the yard. Yeesh! Lately I've felt like plowing it all under and replacing it with sod! Of course I'm not going to do that, but I may downsize to just one side of the yard. We'll see how I feel.
In any case, here is a photo roundup of pretty much everything I harvested in July. At least there was something, I guess!
Little Dickens and Cubanelle Peppers
Tiny Jalapeno's (Supposed to be Grandpa's Favorite)
Very Spiny Cool Breeze Cucumbers (All I got before Gophocalypse)
Aunt Mollie's Ground Cherries
Napoli Carrots & Gold Ball Turnips
Good ol Purple Top Turnips
