Finally, temperatures under 90 degrees. I shut off my AC and opened some windows. Last week, Corvette decided to harvest. I guess that is ok, except he picked a perfectly good bell pepper that I was hoping would get bigger. He sheepishly walked up to me with said bell pepper and MORE cucumbers. I am looking into pickling them. And pickling Corvette for picking my pepper before it was full grown. Grrrrr.
Anyway, here is the harvest this week.
Peppers before picking.
Like the red.
More peppers to add to Corvette’s collection. Yippee.
This may someday be an artichoke. I am hopeful, but not convinced.
Holy Cow! I think this is a zucchini growing on my bean fence. Where are the beans? Oh yea, evil sun.
Corn is looking good.
Hah, evil sun!

And Miss Lucie Lu, my big red dog. She chose to lay on my thongs. Lazy girl enjoying the cooler weather.

I have learned much this summer. I live in a very hot and arid climate. I learned that I can not plant in a normal way. Tomatoes and peppers need to go in when the mesquite tress are green. Corn and snap beans, after the heat of summer. Definity do not plant cucumbers and zucchini together. Monster plants.
I am going try gardening year round to find what works best. I will gather information hopefully I can come up with a better plan. My corn is basically shot because the sun burned it up. I surprised it did not start popping itself.
There are a few stalks that seem ok, but not many.
The aspargus is very happily climb the bean polls.
The cucumbers have taken over. I fear I will outside someday and be swollowed whole. I better keep a better eye on my Chihuahua.
More pepper flower that have since I too these photos have turned to little pepper buds.
The zuccini has plenty of yellow flowers, but so far no zuccini emerging. They are also threatening a takeover.
The tomatoes are giving it their best shot.
Here is a little cucmber trying to stay hydrated.
That is about it. I have me some dead corn to pull up.

My garden is doing well despite 100 degree weather. Trust me, I spend a lot of time with the garden hose these days. I was happy to see that my snap beans are bearing.
I like this shot because I accidently created Depth Of Field without even trying to!
Here is another shot of the cucumber flower. Waiting for actual cucumbers.
My corn is nearly a foot tall now. So exciting!!!
Just another shot of my beans, carrots and Asian radish, which I need to check because I think they may be ready for harvest.
