Week nineteen in the garden

Wow oh wow, it is August already? I can't believe how crazy of a year it has been. Weather has played a major role in delaying all of our crops this year. Thankfully until now the bugs haven't been too bad but recently something has been invading our garden and munching on our strawberries before I ever get to... Grrrrr. What's going on, Daddy? Put up that bird netting already. Sierra and I can't watch the garden all the time.
The cucumbers are finally getting big enough to harvest.

And the tomatoes are bearing plenty of cherry sun golds for all you can eat fresh garden salad.

I love the way corn grows so fast. It will be peaking over our really high fence any day now.

Our oranges still look like limes so Mommy says it looks like they will still be a while.
Kale, lettuce, basil and all of our other herbs are doing excellent in this wonderfully mild summer we're having in Northern California.


  1. Lookin' good! We are running behind this year too, but overall I'd say it's better than last year. Happy Harvest :)


  2. MMM those cukes look yummy


  3. You are going to have your own Farmers Market soon, BOL

  6. Your garden looks so delicious and lush! Although we ARE mad at the bugs eating your strawberries...they are ONE fruit we all like!
