Around this time of year, things get kind of routine and boring in the garden during the work week. I come home from work, pick whatever squash and peas that are ready, do a little watering if needed, and then go back in the house to get away from the heat and the mosquitoes.
The weekend brings an opportunity to catch up on some needed chores. It was really hot today and we have not gotten much rain in the last week so I decided to water everything thoroughly. I then took a trip to my local nursery and picked up some 3ft and 6ft bamboo poles to support my pepper and tomato plants.
I tried to get some aerial shots of the garden. You can see the purple hull peas are just all over the place. I probably won't grow these in beds anymore because they just sprawl all over the place. The second set of corn is a few weeks from harvesting and the third set it about six inches tall. All in all it was a good day despite the heat.
