A picture update July 5

A mixture of rain and heat has led to some incredible growth in the garden this past week.  Our garden has never looked this full.  It's either the weather, the compost manure from last fall or a combination of both.

We have never kept track, so we're not sure, but it seems like everything is much earlier than in past years.  For future comparisons, here's a picture update of the garden on July 5, 2010.

Several beets were perfect for last night's supper.

The peas are well on their way and will be ready by mid week.  I suspect they'll be gobbled up before we even leave the garden.

The beans - green, yellow, purple and scarlett runners are all in full bloom and will be ready soon.

The first of what we suspect will be a gazillion zucchinis is on its way.

The broccoli has made a full recovery underneath the floating row cover and is forming nicely.

Even the kohlrabi plants that were stripped of their leaves by flea beetles have recovered. 

Our yellow peppers are huge.

The corn looks promising.

Even our mystery plant is doing well.  We still don't know what it is, but the bees and butterflies love it.
