I thought you might just like to see how the garden is growing.  Most of the plants are filling out nicely.

We’ve had a number of zucchini from it and the beans are getting close to harvest time. The weather has been challenging; we got 6 inches of rain in the past week. I’m concerned about what that is doing . … . It may be why we aren’t getting many tomatoes. The plants as looking a bit puny.

Last week Troy and I pulled out the lettuce plants since they were bolting.   I then planted more squash in their place:  Yellow, Butternut and Zucchini.  I have to keep the bugs away!   That is my challenge.
