Here are some photos of the gardens from about 1-2 weeks ago. I am briefly away from the land, but before I left, the 28 squash plants were growing at a ridiculous speed. Everything was just taking off. The tomatoes have begun to set fruit,  various types of beans are flowering and setting pods (except the favas, which I have been eating), and the hops has grown a lot from the tiny pieces of roots I planted in Spring.

Now the garden is basically taking care of itself. PEI is, um, “fortunate” to have enough natural rainfall that nothing needs to be watered. This is ideal for gardening (except when it causes damp-related plant disease, etc.) not so ideal for when guests arrive just in time to experience a week of rain. We still had fun, and enjoyed some great beach days. More on that later.
