July in the garden

As we begin July with hot, humid weather, our shout out to gardeners across the region brought in a wonderful range of photos. Gardens are going into full production, moving from greens, radishes and volunteer herbs to peas and beans and beets. Some growers are already seeing summer squash and cukes.

Great fun across a wide range of gardening: from pocket raised beds and patio pots to expansive, long-rowed ventures.

Keep sending those photos to me: ellen@ncpr.org

Remember to send your gardening photos to me–successes as well as failures. I’ll share some of my failures this summer. We learn from our mistakes, right? Photos should be emailed to: ellen@ncpr.org
