The Difference a Month in the Vegetable Garden Makes

What the garden looked like in June versus July

It’s hard to believe that a month ago we were just getting started in the south end of the vegetable garden.

Despite losing a fair number of tomatoes, squash and cucumbers to the ground squirrels, the garden is now just reaching its mid-summer peak. The first round of sweet corn and squash are done, but a second round is coming in fast behind them. Tomatoes are just starting to ripen as well.

We haven’t hit the really hot part of the season yet (that’ll arrive later in August and carry on until October), so I’m hoping I can get a lot of these tomatoes harvested before the heat sets in. Tomatoes won’t flower if it’s too hot, so shading and cooling them a bit should keep them flowering and fruiting into early fall.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
