We will have sweet corn soon!

The ears are gettting filled out, but the kernels don't spray yet when you pierce them. So tonight we are watering with the soaker hose again. It's been so very dry here.

I have some volunteer Roma tomato plants in my garden this year. The plants are doing beautifully.

Tomatoes have been slow to get going here, because the weather has been so cool. But there are small green tomatoes in my garden now.

My dill is huge.

Now... don't look at those... weeds. Yes, I need to weed my garden.

So, my dill. I planted cucumbers in hopes of getting a bunch of baby ones to make into pickles. But something ate all but the center of my cucumber plants earlier this summer - probably deer. So those plants basically had to start over. I don't think my cucumbers will coincide with my dill, if the cucumbers ever do well. So unless I buy some tiny cucumbers at a farmer's market soon, I don't think I'm going to use that dill. I do love homemade dill pickles.

  1. I don't think we'll be getting much for corn this year, if at all. Ours didn't do well. It's still pretty small.

    But, ironically, our tomatoes are doing great! The plants are huge and the fruits are slowly coming in.

    (And...our entire garden is weeds! We haven't been able to keep up with the weeds because of all the rain we've had this year.)
