I haven't see any rain for 2 months.  I think it's been drier than usual here, but not much.  We get very little rain in the summer.

Spud, are you in the middle of a drought? I still use water from my big tubs that collect roof runoff. It's not as easy, but cheap! I haven't had to do it too often since it has been a relatively wet summer.

I think my problem is two-fold.  I've added more soaker-hoses to the garden, which delivers more water per hour, and forgot how long I've let the water run in the past.

This month's water bill from the city was a shocker!  It was 2 or 3 time the normal cost.

That made me open the city's meter hole and check the usage.  I watered my garden and found that I had been using too much water.  I took the gallon usage, converted it to cubic feet, calculated how much I should use to water to the depth that my plants roots went to, and found that I should be using 1/2 to 1/3 as much as I have been using.

Randy, I cut diwn about 2/3 of the blackberry thicket before the weather got too hot for me. I plan to resume cutting late summer /early fall. I did leave some blooming brambles in place for berry picking.

Rained today. Unusual around here in summer. Hoping for some good sweet corn soon.

Welcome, Dorothy, to our little group! I read your comment on Daniel's forum discussion. Regarding tomato worms, I check my plants every day. Those little devils can do some serious damage!

Daniel, it all looks so delicious. My white peaches don't ripen 'til September. Your blue and black berries? I though you got rid of your invasive blackberry patch.

Comment by Plinius on July 21, 2016 at 10:02am

Congrats, Daniel, it looks great!

Some of the kitchen garden produce this week.  I keep whining about no tomatoes yet, but it's really been rewarding.  Collards, mulberries, white flesh peaches, blueberries, blackberries, figs.  You reap what you sow, sometimes  :-)

Randy, I always  enjoy hearing about hour experiments and experiences.

I think there will be the first ever persimmons on my trees this year.  Not American persimmons, although I just constructed a larger deer cage for my 3rd-year  American Persimmon in hopes that it wil keep bearing branches for next year.

Last weekend I harvested garlic - nice crop, and Yukon Gold potatoes, and a few big cooking onions.

Replacing the garlic, I planted seeds for turnips, kohlrabi, radishes, carrots, and others.  Now I need to put up some rabbit fencing and row cover to keep cabbage moths out.
