Let me know if you find something that works to keep critters out of your corn.  Some critter (probably raccoon) just took a bite out of almost all ears of corn in my first planting.  Jerks.

Transplanted the corn today.  Covered with chicken wire cage which will stop birds but not smaller four leggers.  Season wise it is way behind but let's see what happens.

Got back from a trip to Niagara Falls with my UK sister. The weather has been hot and humid with some rain as well on one day. A lot of things have taken off in the veggie garden.

Thanks Marie.

After doing some much needed weeding I harvested peas and strawberries. This is the second harvest for both crops and there will be more to bring in.

Aren’t the berries amazing?  This was my first year to harvest, too...wow.  Made 2 batches of freezer jam.  Unbelievable.  Would have had another batch except I couldn’t get out ther (underwater) for a middle part of June.

Our first ever Ronde de Nice summer squash. Best picked at the size of an apple. Tastes delicious. The seeds were from Baker Creek, USA.Fifth Year SFG in Canada - Page 8 Img_2516

Yesterday my (half) sister returned to the UK after three weeks with us here in Canada. We had never met before. It was an amazing time.

Now it is time to get back to gardening. I harvested Sugar Snap and Snow Peas today. I think this year's pea harvest  is the best ever. Also starting to see some small tomatoes.

It's amazing to me that you can grow both cold weather (peas) and hot weather (tomatoes) at the same time. Very Happy

Congrats on the peas, TD. winner  

I'm still getting sugar snap peas and I've had long beans for about 3 weeks. I think I'd better collect seeds to make sure I keep these hardy varieties for next year. hyper

Usually my peas do not grow well because we go quickly from Spring frost to Summer heat. This year we had an extended cool wet Spring before the heat arrived. As well even when we have hot days it usually cools off in the night which helps.

Thanks. 

Mix of annuals and perennials but the latter take up most of the real estate.

The last two photos show an annual mix. They were grown from a "tape of seeds" bought at the dollar store, rolled out and covered with a thin layer of soil.

1. I like to see the pollinators such as this bee in the garden.   
2. Getting lots of Ronde de Nice Squash.
3. I started a new compost pile on my newest SoilSaver bin and it is cooking away nicely at 140 Fahrenheit.
4. Harvested cucumbers, sugar snap and snow peas from the SFG. Also raspberries from another part of the garden.
