Very Dry Garden, Onions Harvested

My garden continues to miss out on all of the rain, so the conditions remain very very dry. At least it has cooled down a bit. I continue to water about every 4 to 5 days. Lets hope for some rain soon! I pulled up my onions about 2 weeks ago and let them cure about a week. I think it was a decent onion harvest this year (see pic below). I continue to harvest cabbage, celery, hot banana peppers, bush green beans, and broccoli side shoots. The Silver Queen white corn is just about ready to harvest……YUM. All of the Red Norland potatoes have been harvested. They are really flavorful this year. I am still waiting for the first ripe roma tomatoes. There are many green tomatoes on the plants, but no red ones yet. I suspect that they will be ripening up within the next 2 weeks or so. The fall seedlings (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and lettuce) continue to grow in their little cell packs on the back porch. Hopefully they will be big enough to transplant out into the garden in another 2 weeks. I will be planting carrot seeds as well as more bush green beans within the week. Happy Late July Gardening!
