OK, yeah, I did some farming last weekend

Amazing how when you aren't working, it gets easier to not do stuff -- like post your Farm pictures. Anyway, guess I'll catch up now. Of course, Jeb the Wonder Dog went with me:


Looks like the zukes are doing OK, despite the seemingly continuous rainfall:


That's Farmer Tom tending the zukes and squash bed, which needs more sunshine but is doing OK:


The onions seem to like their full-sun position:


The potatoes, on the other hand, are not liking the amount of rain we've had:


Peppers coming along:


Jalapenos:


And the habaneros:


Green beans, still busting:


Look good from a distance, too:


Here's the second crop of green beans, coming right along:


This is the old spinach bed, begging to be tilled under and planted with something else:


The carrots, still crying out for thinning:


So we thin:


 Maters are getting there:


That's the Romas. Here are the Big Boys or whatever:


Another pretty good haul of beans:


All in all, spuds aside, The Farm is doing reasonably well this summer. More sunshine, a little less rain, and we could be bumper crops all around. We'll see.
