I’ve been too busy (ok, too uninspired) since returning from vacation to post. The garden got too much rain, then the rain stopped again. My corn all died – just dried-up little ears, some with what looks like corn smut. But the tomatoes are beginning to produce, with the slight break from the heat. My squash plants all died while I was gone; cucumbers are growing but not producing. Oh well, it’s about time to think about the fall garden anyway.
