July Garden

Most of June and all of July thus far has been hot and steamy.  We’ve gotten some much needed rain over the past couple of days though,  and my organic garden is very happy!  I’ve been able to harvest eggplant, peppers, green beans, cukes and herbs. I’m awaiting the tomatoes and it looks to be a bumper crop this year. Al’s been using a lot of charcoal this summer as opposed to the gas grill and with it being so hot out, we’ve sparked it up more nights than not. One of my favorite things to do is just load up the grill with garden veges and eat them just like that.  Roasted eggplant, peppers and zucchini… YUM!

My flowers are also doing well but admittedly, it’s necessary to stay on top of the watering and dead heading because of the massive heat and sunshine. Thank goodness for my rain barrels!  I’m loving this summer and have been outside most of my waking hours. 🙂

Lots of peppers!
