Mid July Garden Update

All plants are liking warm weather we have had for last 10 days. It’s been in 70s and occasional 80s for last 2 weeks. I am suddenly seeing seeds germinated (which I forgotten that I ever seeded) , beans showing visible new growth day by day and much more. Here’s mini tour of the garden.

Garden in mid-July is looking greener and fuller with warm temperatures. It has been mix of sunny, overcast and few showers for month of July. Sunny days followed by some rain are making good conditions for greens. Tomatoes and other warmth loving plants are not vigorous yet, I am hoping rest of July and august bring some high temps. We’ll see…


Here are 3 smallish potato plants.  One is volunteer and other 2 are planted.  Potatoes are flowering; I’ll dig up when potato fruits are set.


This is one of the unkempt raised beds. There are few things growing on there, I have to weed in and plant fall/winter veggies in here.  Few buttercup squash is growing on side.


This side has cabbage and cauliflower with one tomato plant. Cabbage is ‘early Jersey Wakefield’ type.


Bed 1 has pea plants on left side, these are planted back in Spring, most are picked by now and vines are slowly dying. I’ll plan to clear them in next 10-15 days. Next to it is random radishes and few beans planted. Middle is dill greens; these are close to being harvested. Right side of the bed is green Sorrel.
