More rain!

The rain continues.  Over 2.5" so far.  Good for the corn, but maybe we should have planted rice here instead of pumpkins.

Summer fields

Blue skies...a welcome sight in this rainy season.

Tomatoes, 2000 of them, with 1000 stakes and first string.
Solar-powered electric fence (foreground) keeps out deer.

Sweet corn much taller then "knee-high by the Fourth of July!" 

Puddles make it difficult to harvest summer squash.
Make a tasty, colorful medley using 10 varieties.

Pepper patch with a few skinny yellow hot bananas. 

Cool weather crops on white mulch,
to provide cooler soil, conserve moisture and grow cleaner produce. 

We are harvesting Lettuce II now.
These 2 rows of Lettuce III will be ready soon. 

Candy onions love these warm rainy days.

Broccoli (foreground) coming soon!
