Things are looking a bit better here garden-wise.
A run of warm weather and a bit of plant food have goosed the bell peppers into producing. My purple pepper plant now has 5 fruits!
The tomatoes are ripening. I have more Romas than slicers, but that's OK. The harvest will still be below last year's. (Shouldn't complain. One of my relatives says their tomatoes were wiped out by a blight.)
The green and wax beans continue to produce like champs! I've filled a couple of gallon bags for the freezer.
I harvested some onions ... I'd thrown an onion gone bad into a deep pot, and the result was 3 small bulbs. Potent, too. I sliced them for cucumber salad and had a good cry!
I've also planted some lettuce in hopes of a fall crop. Never tried that before, so I hope my timing isn't off.
