My husband went to the garden yesterday morning before the sun was too high in the sky, and began picking tomatoes and bell peppers.
So far it's been a good season for the garden when it comes to growing tomatoes and bell peppers.
but he has planted cucumbers from three different times, from three different seed packets
and they have refused to grow, which is a first for our garden.
We have cucumbers every year since starting our garden in 2013.
It's disappointing, but this has been an extremely hot summer with vast amounts of rain during June and July...
possibly too much rain, and the cucumbers seeds could not take root or simply washed away.
He built a drainage system around the garden so that heavy rains will now drain around or under the garden, I guess next year will be another chapter in our garden's history.
We can tomatoes each summer. This year he has been busy with doing coding work for a client, so his hands are full.
So this morning I had a neighbor over who's husband is out of town a lot, but will return tomorrow.
We sent her home with some of these red, round beauties after a lovely visit on the screened porch.
With the harvest we have had thus far, my husband will soon be filling the picking basket once again.
Summer bounty is a good thing and we enjoy sharing it with those around us.
