July Garden Update

Southern Ontario has had a wet and not very sunny June and July this year.  This is a bit of challenge to gardeners.  Our garden at the cottage is, for the most part, doing surprisingly well.  I thought I’d produce a mainly photos post updated its progress

Radishes

Radishes

Radishes love lots of rain so that they size up before becoming too woody or too hot.

Tomatoes

The tomato plants are full of flowers as well as some fruit that is starting to get the white shoulders that mean that ripe ones are only a couple weeks away.  These would really be helped by some genuinely hot and sunny weather.

Beets

Beets

The beets are doing very well this year and I may be able to harvest enough to satisfy my pickled beets demand.

Rainbow Lights Swiss Chard

Rainbow Lights Swiss Chard

Rainbow lights swiss chard has been standing (without bolting) for about a month now.  This makes it a great consistent supplier of garden-fresh greens.

Wild dill

"Wild" dill

Finally, some dill growing “wild” on the left and right of the picture beside the swiss chard.  We didn’t plant dill here this year but it has been grown in the garden in previous years and I guess some seeds were turned up when I worked the soil last fall or this spring.
