By the beginning of July things had come in impressively.  Just about all of the seeds had taken.  And, the pumpkin that came home from kindergarten had outgrown its box.  Since when do school plants actually grow!?

We missed the June strawberry season.  There weren’t many berries and I think those that did form got eaten by chipmunks.


We had a steady supply of green beans.


I also set up a sprinkler because our amazingly wet, but not too wet, and cool, but not cold, spring had given way to summer heat.

The peas grew nicely up their trellis.  The carrots and pumpkin competed for space.  The pumpkin began its takeover down the wall.  And, the corn came in shockingly well.  It’s not Field of Dreams, but it’s an orderly square of corn stalks.
