School has started and summer is pretty much over. And I haven’t written anything about the garden since April!

Basically, we didn’t spend nearly as much time out there this year, and it showed. Luckily for us, we had done some prep in early Spring, and were able to coast a bit.

We had a mild summer, and very little weeding was done. But we still managed to have a good year for:

Snow Peas

I’m also excited about our apples and blueberries, which have really beefed up and are starting to produce. I expect more next year.

It was a terrible year for tomatoes – not even worth canning anything! Unfortunately, we took down a flexible fence in that part of the garden, with the intention of replacing but never did. The deer feasted on tomatoes and grapes.

Finally, just for fun, here is a link to the song that always gets stuck in my head at this time of year.

Don Henley, Boys of Summer:
