The summer of 2014 could be called the summer of rain. Rain is a good thing but there is such a thing a too much of a good thing. The temps have been crazy mild and the garden has been stunted greatly.
Usually by the beginning of August I am canning beans every few days. We do not even have enough beans matured for a good meal let alone canning. The past week and a half has been sunny and warm for the most part and it is helping. I just pray we have enough time to get some beans mature enough for canning.
The first two tomatoes to turn on the vine. We usually have tomatoes from mid-July on but not this summer.
