Garden Update

Mulched and ready for summer

Mulched and ready for summer

The garden is now (relatively) weed free and mulched for the summer with a six-inch deep blanket of salt hay.  It’s been very hot here for the last few days so we’ve been out at about 6:00 a.m. and are back in the house and into the shower at about 9:00 a.m.  I even got the pots and trays washed.  The peas and early lettuce are over and the initial broccoli raab has gone to seed.  I picked all the first heads of broccoli and froze most of them along with a gallon of green beans.  Summer squash and tomatoes are just beginning.  I’m trying (yet again) to defeat the squash vine borer, this year by planting self-pollinating zucchini seed.  I’ll let you know how that goes.  See archives for July, 2012 for last year’s efforts in this battle.

Clean pots!
