Currently at our house, there are tomatoes on almost every windowsill, picked a bit early by our 5 year old who just can’t help himself. I have four large zucchinis sitting on the counter, ready to be used.
Green beans and edamame beans have taken over everything out in the garden. But the carrots underneath are happy to have the shade. We are watching baby cantaloupes and watermelons grow right before our eyes.
But this is also the time of the year that I always seem to start letting things go. It gets hot and I am not in the garden as often as I was earlier in the spring. I get tired of watering or we go on vacation and things begin to dry up. And garden pests like squash bugs can begin to get to the fruits of our labor.
But just because it is summer doesn’t mean it’s time to take a vacation from the garden. There is lots to do, friends!
Let’s check in with everyone to see how your garden is growing.
