Look, it’s a bee pollinating a cantaloupe flower! One of many. In fact, I can’t even go near the garden without disrupting dozens and dozens of bees. Between that and the extreme heat, I haven’t been out in the yard much these past few weeks. And it shows! There’s grass growing in the raised beds, weeds in the herb garden, and plants in dire need of pruning.
I did get outside long enough to pick my first yellow squash. I’ve never had luck with zucchini, so I was pretty thrilled to get a yellow squash. Perhaps I should stick with that from now on? I felt a little pang of sadness cutting it up for dinner, but it was delicious.
Last year I got a seemingly never-ending supply of eggplant from the garden and it’s looking promising this year too. Which is great! Because eggplant is delicious, especially when you grow it yourself.
We finally started composting, using this tutorial for making a composter from a garbage can. So this is what it looks like now!
I’d love to hear about how your garden is doing! Do you have any tips for composting?
