Into August!! 8/3/13 progress report.
Well Anchorage has set a record for the number of consecutive 70 degree days. And well the garden has been the better for it.
We might even get some okra.
Tomatoes are doing very well. As a matter of fact this is the best crop I've ever had in Alaska.
The green bean corner. We have been eating tons for a while now.
The cucumbers are coming on strong now too.
These are Boston pickeling cucumbers and aren't suppose to get real big. Here's the front runner right now.
Potatoes look happy.
And the berry picking has begun.
The peas have over topped their fences.
We have been getting tons of scarlet runner bean flowers but so far have only seeen a few beans set.
And our zuchs and squash have really been enjoying the sun.
