Green Beans in the front garden, only 22 rows about 50' long. We use chopped bean straw as a mulch to suppress weeds, hold in moisture but mostly to prevent dirt splash up againest the beans when we have those July thunder storms with big rain drops.

Cabbage in Tunnel # 2. It seems a little later than last year but making steady progress.

All the potatoes have been hilled. These are in the "pasture garden". The variety on the right are Red Norlands, an early red potato. We have a variety called Rose Gold in Tunnel # 2 that flowered two weeks ago and will be dug tomorrow and Monday. There is also a row of Yukon Gold in Tunnel #2 but they haven't flowered yet.
