Despite these weather-related challenges, the garden eventually rallied back and we've had a reasonably decent harvest in the past few weeks.
The green beans (as always) were dependable and I had beans, beans, and more beans for a couple of weeks there:
Now the green beans are starting to peter out (I just did a second planting of them late last week, so hopefully I'll get another good harvest in a few weeks' time) and the tomatoes and zucchini are starting to kick into high gear:
Our cherry tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes (hubby's favourite) are doing well. Unfortunately, the romas are not; many of the tomatoes have blossom rot and I'm wondering if we're going to have any edible harvest at all from those plants. The baby tiger zucchini is a variety I'm growing for the first time this year - aren't they pretty? So far the zucchini plant seems to be holding up pretty well against the heat, and it's setting a bunch more itty bitty zucchinis, so hopefully I'll get a good yield from that plant by the end of the season.
The pepper plants seem to have recovered nicely, too. They were looking totally pathetic earlier in the season, but since the heat kicked in they appear to be enjoying life a lot more. The hot pepper plants have started producing, and my Gypsy sweet peppers are cranking it into high gear. There are a lot of peppers on the plants, I just have to wait for them to turn red now (it's definitely worth the wait - they are the sweetest red peppers I've ever tasted!)
