|(cloudy and wet this morning)|
Finally the garden is starting to look like a garden. We've been in a barren spell since the lettuce and asparagus finished producing, but the next crops are coming along. We would have been enjoying a few other vegetables, but Mr. Dandy "worked" on the garden before he moved to his new home. :-( I found my first cucumber this morning and it will definitely be part of my lunch today. I love cucumbers and I have very mixed luck growing them. The dreaded squash bugs are my mortal enemies! So far, no sign of them, but I'm sure they're lurking around, waiting for me to feel secure before they show up to humble me once again. I've been reading that row covers might be a way to prevent the infestation, so that's on my to-do list, if it's not too late.
