Garden photo update

We posted photos of these plots newly planted so I thought maybe you all might like to see them growing and producing.

Here is our tomato plot.  We are getting a few delicious tomatoes as they come ripe.  Jon is our tomato lover and is discovering which varieties he likes the best.  I am busy making stewed tomatoes and freezing some for winter. We also have been sharing tomatoes with friends.

And here is the corn and melon and pumpkin bed.

In trying to work with the weather, our second dry hot summer with little or no rain, the crops we planted that like the heat are doing well.  The ones that need shade or cooler temperatures, are not doing so well.  Each year we learn a little more about our soil and climate and the needs of our plants.
