It’s July and prime season for the crops. Even the pumpkins have quickly regrown and proving to be a bumper this year! The fabric row covers have been a blessing, especially since it’s been so hot and dry. Limiting the sunshine on plants like the lettuce has encouraged better growth.The carrots are growing so big so fast we actually have to reseed for an additional crop.The broccoli continues to grow a number of small heads even after first harvest. More peppers are growing in previous years and they are much larger. As usual the tomatoes have been a challenge as they always are, but we still had enough to meet demand. Our first try at butternut squash and acorn squash is successful. The beans, in the end managed to perk up and give us a good crop. All in all it’s been a good year.
