Update from the Gardens
It seems that a switch went off in some of the crops and the fruits are coming on! The summer squash, cucumbers, and greens beans dropped into the mode of productivity in a matter of a couple of days of dry heat. A less desirable switch went off in the sweet corn, and that was to send out tassels. Normally that's a great sign, but only if the corn has had the conditions to grow up tall first. Due to the extremely cool and wet conditions earlier this season, our sweet corn is only about knee high, so the tassels at the top of those tiny plants don't give us the impression that there are any ears of corn coming our way this season.
