August Update

Well, it's still hot. No rain yet. We will all be glad when some comes.

We cut into our first ripe watermelon. It was one of the yellow-fleshed varieties, weighed over 30 pounds and was sweet and delicious.

Despite having canned MUCH relish, I sold 66 pounds of cucumbers yesterday. That is pretty amazing. Nine pounds of patty pan squash was also sold.

Something is eating all the green tomatoes and is not affected by my portable motion sensor light. I'm wondering if it is birds landing in the middle of the garden early in the morning. Another security problem to solve...

So, that's the scoop for today. Over and out.

Hot and dry here, but the crops seem to be coming in OK. I've heard people below the mountain really complain about their gardens, though.
