The garden looks very lush this time of year. The gourds and jackolanterns, cucumbers and watermelons reach farther and farther into the lawn every day. We have harvested a decent crop of green beans, a few tomatoes for eating raw, a nice bunch of carrots, lots of herbs and a handful of zucchini.
“Cabin” is the variety of tomato that is again the clear winner in my garden. While the others have either died or are very small, Cabin is 9 feet tall and going strong. Nothing set fruit as well as past years, but everyone else in town that I talk to tells the same story. It’s just a bad gardening year.
