Not a lot of dramatic developments in the garden this week; things are just chugging along. A few highlights:
The first cucumber is almost ready to eat.
We have peas! We harvested a few on the weekend and made a tiny salad.
Because I uprooted all the mature basil in a panic about downy mildew, and because the basil seeds I planted in May are growing very slowly, I treated myself to a new basil plant.
Otherwise, stuff is just growing. The zucchinis keep coming, the little green tomatoes are appearing, and – at the risk of jinxing – no major infestations have appeared. (Frantically knocking wood.) The weather for the last week has been wonderful. It’s not too hot, it’s not too wet, and the sun is making its way through our newly pruned trees. My plants seem happy! So I’m happy too.
