Our garden has been loving the hot weather - the tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and pattypan are very happy. The snap peas have gone by and the green beans are just starting to flower. The garlic is trying its best to dry despite this very, very humid weather we've been having here in NH. The Brussels sprouts were attacked overnight all at once by cabbage worms, and we had to pull the plants - they were decimated (it was a sad moment, yanking those plants up!!). And this morning we picked our first ever yellow crookneck squash, along with the cukes and tomatoes in the photo. We even have a couple little tiny pumpkins on the vine. I don't know if it's too late in the season for them to mature into pick-able fruit, but it's pretty nifty to see them out there trying their best (we've never had success growing pumpkins before, so this is the closest we've come yet to our own little pumpkin patch in the back yard). Happy day!
