We should be seeing Summer squash very soon! Hopefully some raspberries too!

The planting is almost complete, I am just setting out the last of the Pepper plants. Every year I try to learn from the previous year and plant accordingly. I think I did better with the pepper plants this year than last, however I might have started a few more than I really should have. =)

Keep in mind canning, if you want to make pickles I have dill and cucumbers. I will also have tomatoes a little later on. Green beans as well.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer and enjoying the warm weather. We are glad the heat wave is over for now. It was really hard on the young transplants.

Have a great week!
