We’re two-thirds of the way through summer, the heat is brutal and it hasn’t rained since mid-April. The garden looks tired. Half of it is under cover to keep the plants from burning, the other half just looks ragged. Here’s photos of how it looked on June 18 versus today:
The warm season extends well into October here in San Diego, so I’ve still got plenty of time for a second round of summer veggies, some of which have already been transplanted (like the sweet peppers you can see under the burlap shade cloth) and others (sweet corn, tomatoes and beans) that are waiting in the greenhouse for their turn in the beds.
