Gosh, it’s been over a month since my last post. During that time, it’s been very busy at work, our browser at home continues to be incredibly slow, and I compete with Jess who is doing an on-line course.

Today is a lovely sunny day and a good time for a synopsis of what’s happened since that last posting.  Our garden continues to grow.  The corn is indeed as high as an elephant’s eye and is touching the roof of the bubble garden (BG).  Corn tops are bending over and ears are  developing.  At the other end of the BG, someone’s sunflowers are doing the same as our corn!  Squash is growing prolifically in several plots including ours.  We continue to harvest lettuce.  I picked a sunflower that was growing between two rows of corn.  We have a few radishes and some shiso leaves.  There are golf ball sized squash developing, but they are not growing as quickly as I expected. May be it’s due to the continued change in temperatures…we had hail twice the beginning of July!
