no zukes for canning/freezing. plenty for eating all summer even though we didn't plant any.  :D

getting the winter garden in, peas, greens, broccoli etc. Our artichokes are on the verge of flowering again. gotta get those dug up and transplanted.

My tomatoes are doing well- so well the wind keeps knocking them over in their cages. Last time I use this type of cage. Stakes in the future.

BTW the hugelkulture appears to work very well. I used old wood and haven't needed to water much once the plants got established.

nice! glad that's working out for you. I was out in the garden last night fantasizing about a big ol' tangle of perennial beds. I want a cherry tree but I really want tart pie cherries and I don't think they would much care for the 110+ heat in the summer here. Maybe hugel is the answer to that as well. have to think that over.
