    Soysauce + olive oil traps were startlingly effective at eliminating my earwig issue! They went crazy over this stuff! Next time I’ll add a few drops of sardine oil to attract even more.

    A bit of a French theme in the center: Lavender, leeks, thyme, echinachea and the Schauder’s sweet potato vines sprawling around everything.

    July progress pictures. I sit out here with a cup of tea and feel profound spirituality and peace.

    I planted and harvested a lot of lettuce. This is some of my earlier harvest.

    This is towards the end of my early lettuce season. I also started getting some cucumbers and zucchini. This is the first year I have been successful with growing and harvesting cucumbers!!

    My garlic is growing very well this year. I was able to get a bunch of garlic scapes.

    Here are my raised beds. Everything is doing well. I think the garlic has kept the rabbits out of my raised beds this year. I planted them in a border around the outer edges of the bed they were eating my plants. I have already had about 5 or 6 yellow and zucchini squash with many more to come. I have lots of little green tomatoes. I planted several varieties. My pepper plants are flowering. Celery is getting big. I will be harvesting garlic soon.

    I planted cucumbers in one of my round pots. These pots were new last year and did not do well. This year, things are looking good. I am going to get a good cucumber harvest.

    This pot has herbs in it. The cilantro has flowered. I want to try and harvest seeds. Basil is nice and healthy.

    I harvested these squash and the garlic this week. The garlic is not quite ready, but i will use this when I roast my squash.

    Last week I oven roasted my squash along with some of my garlic scapes and some other leftover veggies I had in the fridge. I made some scrambled eggs and added a side of leftover rice and had a light and healthy dinner.

    My first jar of fermented dill pickles using my Chicago pickling cucumbers , garlic, dill and a two grape leaves all from the garden. I used the recipe by Diane from the master class on holistic homesteading (highly recommended!) . The photo is from day 1.

    Summer has gotten very busy here - much busier than I prefer! We’ve been eating greens, but no other produce yet. My shishito peppers are finally coming on, and I have some grape tomatoes, but not much. Cucumbers look good & potatoes are growing like crazy (hopefully that will result in potatoes, too!). I’ll harvest my garlic soon. Not sure what’s going on w my onions - they’ve grown tall, but I’m not sure about the growth of the bulb. Peas, fennel, broccoli & green beans have all gone to those rotten rabbits (they chewed through my hard plastic fence, too!)


    My new garden area was is a good one for certain crops, but I need to make some changes this fall & get a better fence. 


    I think next year I’m going to have to try tomatoes in containers on my deck. Even though it doesn’t get full sun, it does reflect the heat & light.
