Kasvimaa elokuussa - Garden in August

My little garden is coming along well. Peas have been picked and eaten. The leaf lettuce has run its course and gone to seed so I have planted some more to be enjoyed in September. The cilantro has flowered and gone to seed. The other herbs are thriving. The past few weeks had been pretty dry so I did some pretty intensive watering last weekend.

Carrots coming along nicely.

Green beans are possibly my favorite vegetable.

Leeks. I've never grown these before, so I have no idea if they are doing well or not.

Beets. One short row, just enough for a pot of borscht.

My ongoing sweet corn project. Male flowers aka tassels.

Sweet corn. Female flowers aka silk.
