Harvesting: Potatoes, lettuce, herbs, baby chard,  carrots, the last of the shelling peas.
Planting: Nothing this week
Growing: tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, lettuce, grapes, zucchini, fall squash, cucumbers, beets, carrots, strawberries, chard, sweet peas, arugula, herbs of all sorts
Gave up on:  The shelling peas – short season this year and a very low yield. We tried a new variety this year (need to confirm the type) and it did NOT do well in the garden.

Nice crop of volunteer potatoes this year.  The potato above might have been left in the ground a wee bit too long. Carrots are loving the new raised beds – this is the best crop yet.

Above — Clearly there was no  tomato pruning regimen — whoops. Below is the volunteer pumpkin vine with green beans and grapes in the background

The green beans and gourds both flowered this week.

Summer squash above and the garden haul below. We had a great garden feast on Sunday – Roasted carrots with honey-thyme butter, green salad, roasted rosemary potatoes and minted peas — all from the garden!
