The garden is doing quite well. I decided to take stock of what I could harvest today July 10th, water, and decide what to plant for the remainder of this year's growing season. The deer problem was so severe that I had to go to Robnett's Hardware and purchase some plastic mesh and some six foot plastic stakes to make a concerted effort to keep those critters away from my lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli and all else!
I installed my defense barrier against the deer on Saturday, so far it appears to be having the desired effect. This morning I harvested several garlic, an abundance of peas and radishes, some additional potatoes, and some scallions along with my very first deliciously red ripe tomato!
I planted some more seed potatoes along with some more garlic. The long sunny warm days for the remainder of July heading into August and September will hopefully produce some more wonderful garlic and potatoes.
I may also plant some additional peas. The peas from the three hills I planted produced and continue to produce an abundance of sweet sugar snap peas. The key to my garden going forward the rest of July will be abundant sunshine and of course sufficient moisture.
Until my next update, good gardening!
