We had rain and the air is delightfully cool and dry -- a good time to be in the garden. What you see here is asparagus above the wall and summer squash, peppers, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, collards, and three kinds of kale in the box beds.
Sweet corn, in the farthest two rows is coming on; there are little green tomatoes in the two row above the sweet corn; and the pole beans (Purple Royalty) are starting to make. In the foreground is the Glass Gen Indian corn -- remember year before last a friend sent me a few seeds? I grew about eight plants then, saved the seed, and have quite a few more this year.
Green peppers are almost big enough to pick.
No cucumbers yet but the vines seem healthy. And there are a few beets -- which I grow mainly because I like the leaves in salads.
The basil is flourishing -- I spent a little time trimming off the blooms and weeding around it -- enjoying the quiet of a beautiful day and the clove-like smell of basil in the air
