Ginnie BakerIt’s mid-July, and the garden is finally looking like a garden!

Things got a slow start with the cold spring but the tomato plants have small tomatoes, the squash plants have small squash and the pumpkins have small pumpkins.

The cabbage is beginning to form small heads so I think I’ll have plenty to make my yearly jars of sauerkraut.

My friend, Bonnie, and I have been lamenting the fact that none of our seed potatoes are coming up. I’m not sure why; I’ve always had a good crop of potatoes.

I know things will be late this year, but “better late, than never!”
