Unlike the rest of the country we have not had endless days of heat and sun beating down on us. We had a couple weeks of high temperatures but most of the summer has been very tolerable indeed. The garden hasn't seemed to mind the lack of heat, though we aren't getting more than a few ripe tomatoes yet. The catch-up time this week has been pleasant work with mild 70s temperatures.
My husband and I prepared the corn for the freezer all by ourselves. No kid helpers around this year, for the first time in forever.
This week I also harvested some massive cabbages. According to my garden notes these are Stein's Early Dutch.
The trucks loaded with bins of fruit are starting to wind there way around the valley roads towards the packing houses so summer is definitely waning.
