June 24th

More hot weather and thunderstorm seem to not bother the garden.

Summer Squash
Two raised boxes of Summer Squash & Zucchini in the middle row… Garden Beans and Heirloom Tomatoes in the bottom beds.


Lots of flowers on the Cucumbers. White powdery mold from the lack of air circulation. Next year, we may have to give them more spacing?


Too Hot For June

Well its mid-June and it has been very hot here in south-west Virginia… the garden is well on its way and we finally got sweet potatoes in the ground. The “three sisters” box is planted out, with the addition of climbing beans. We had to wait until the corn got tall enough to give it a head start on the beans.

How is your garden doing? Any suggestions or questions of us?

Garden Loves The Rain

With a few rain storms, the garden is really off and running… everything seems to really love the rain.
