June was a very rainy month and it was hard to keep the garden weeded. It’s not weedless, but it looks a lot better than it did.
These are field radishes planted by the corn to suppress the weeds. The soil seems to be compacted in this spot and the tiller jumps around when I try to till here. The radish roots are supposed to go deep and loosen up the soil.
The potatoes look good, the rain washed most of the potato bugs off the leaves. There are a few on the plants so I powdered them. The green beans look bedraggled after being weeded.
I’ve harvested broccoli several times and more is coming. The peas are still yielding, they love all the moisture.
The garlic leaves have started turning brown, soon it will be time to pull them.
This years garden is half the size of last years. Volunteer dill weed and cosmos came up in what was part of last years garden. I’m hoping they attract swallow-tail butterflies.
