But for some reason, this green isn't the type of green most gardeners dream of.
The rains of the past two weeks have given everything a nice layer of color. Most of it will die off once the sun hits it again, but it sure is everywhere.
I didn't participate in Harvest Mondays for some time now since I've pulled most of everything productive from the garden. As a matter of fact, when I started writing this last night, this was the harvest I had pictured from the last two weeks:
Try to hold your applause.
Then, today I ventured out to the garden and picked this:
Thank goodness for peppers! They're the only thing producing in this heat. I do have a few bush beans growing and they're filling out, but they're really small. This is the stage I picked them on the first patch of bush beans I planted, so I'm going to let them go a bit longer and see if they grow any more or if they'll just go to seed.
Today I'm working on getting the fall garden in full swing. I've amended the beds with more compost and tonight I'll restring them. Tomorrow I'll plant some seeds and away we'll go. Hopefully. I'm wondering if it's still too hot for lettuce, radishes and carrots since August can still be rather brutal, but I'm going to try my hand at another round of cucumbers. Hey, I've got the trellis space now. :)
