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.

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.
