Recession Garden update: middle June

It has been a good month for my vegetable and herb garden. On the heels of one of the wettest springs in recent memory, the early summer has started off with several showers and storms--enough to keep me from having to hand water any of the vegetables I put in a week before Mother's Day.

I've already had to pinch back the basil a few times, add in some flowers for color (verbena, marigolds, four o' clocks), and re-tie the purple string bean bushes. My pumpkin and butternut squash vines are already venturing into parts of the bed I didn't think they'd visit until August. So, I am watching, waiting, weeding. More pics after the solstice...
