A long, dry Summer...

This summer the Concord grapes vines did well with less moisture in the ground under the arbor as did the lavender and the foxglove in other parts of the garden. The basil is still doing well especially the plants in a very large pot. The peach trees had no blossoms due the the warm spell early in the season followed by a frost. The pear tree bloomed but all the blossoms dropped and no fruit appeared. The potatoes and beets are much smaller then usual. The broccoli is finally coming along. The winter squash and pumpkins are veery small and there are not many of them. 

More attention needed to be paid to mulching earlier in the growing season. It keeps the soil at a more even temperature, retains moisture and keeps the weeds under control. And much more attention to the changes that took place!
