New tomato and pepper plants replaced the dead ones that stuck out of the ground like black frost bitten fingers. Beds of lettuce, kale, corn, and carrots were replanted as well as hills of Zucchini, Cucumber, Cantaloupe, and Watermelon.
L, with the help of C spent tireless hours keeping the weeds under control and watering the fledgling plants.
By early July, the garden was flourishing due to their TLC and we had more than our share of Zucchini and Cucumbers.
Later July brought Tomatoes (Early Girl, Beef Steak, Rutgers, Roma), Swiss Chard, Cayenne Peppers, and the first Okra.
Early lettuce gave way to bell peppers, cantaloupe, and watermelon.
Flowers in the collage above; left to right, top to bottom are:

Thanks L for making this year's garden a great success!
