Our garden, despite the drought, is really coming into full swing these days. With Maeve’s arrival, we were a little late getting things planted, which is why we’re just now getting tomatoes and cucumbers. Our squashes haven’t done so well. I think because the bees got too hot to pollinate, and I can’t blame them.

I spent a few hours last night pruning the tomatoes in hopes of getting them ready for their last few weeks of big production. Check out this post from last summer for some easy pruning tips. I also came across this post, which I thought explained pruning well. I think I might try her method for staking next year.
