Garden 2009 Update #2

We’ve had some strange weather here in Chicago his summer. As a result, the garden has been a bit behind schedule. We’ve had some green beans and a couple of nice-sized zucchini, but the tomatoes are all green. We usually have more than a few red ones by this time of year.
Over at Cypress, the “Three Sisters” experiment didn’t go as planned, but we still have several corn plants going over there as well as some peppers and a bunch of tomato plants (with all green fruit as well). Photos coming soon.
Rose of Sharon
The Rose of Sharon bush bloomed just in time for the annual family party in mid-July, and our first wave of sunflowers burst nicely.
It’s vacation week here, so we’ll have a good combination of relaxing and working on the house.
