Wow. That early super hot summer did a number on my hericot green beans. Still, the harvest is coming in. Tomatoes, squash, my first zucchini ready to pick any day (I plant them late, after I pull out the spring peas), and several giant pumpkins growing steadily for fall harvest.

August has been very wet, following a disastrously dry July. It feels like fall, sunny and cool, but the days still stretch out, giving my crops plenty of rays to bring them to maturation.
