Summer is here! The weather has been great. The fields are drying out so things are being planted again. Green Bans, Lettuce, Herbs, Green Onions, Cucumbers, and Flowers like Sunflowers, Zinnias and Statice. I like these flowers for fall cutting.
The sweet corn is from Indiana, I have no idea when Minnesota will be ready.
Lettuce, Romaine, Green Onions, Kale, and Peas are being picked. The Candy Onions are getting bigger, but will be a while before they’re ready.
The Georgia Peaches are excellent.
Time for Peach Pie soon.
Gardening advise is slim to none—flowers are wonderful. Be sure to dead head plants. I cut flowers off the Hostas. Keep the weeds out of the gardens the best that you can. Stop pulling Rhubarb.
