The Fourth of July holiday apparently gave our garden some extra snap, crackle and spark. When we returned to the garden on the 5th, we found zucchini ready for picking and an abundance of peppers, lettuce, basil and cilantro.
Our carrots look like they are ready to burst any day now, and our green beans have finally appeared for the first time. They will still need a little more clinging time on the vine, so we will have something to look forward to over the next few weeks.
Alas, my garden blog will be on hiatus for the next several weeks, since I will be ramping up for an intensive 6-week summer class at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. I will continue to update the photo album when I can, so you can see the goodness that is our Ben Franklin Garden.
It’s been a great summer thus far!
