My garden is winding down

Summer is here. It is not a good thing. My plants are demanding Air Conditioning or else.

This is the time that my garden starts winding down. I try and put shade cloth and give them more water but 112 degrees is still hot no mater what. It has cooled down to a lovely 104 today.

The onions are winding down and time to pick.

They will cure for up to 2 weeks.

They smell great and taste wonderful. I will plant these again.

Unfortunately my tomatoes are failing fast. There are still some on the vine but not sure how much longer they can take it. My wife has been picking them and they are wonderful.


  1. Ahh, my favorites - onions and tomatoes! YUM. Don't you wish you could get homegrown tomatoes all year??? Great pics, btw and thanks for joining in! I'm a bit behind in responding given my bum arm but better late than never, right? Enjoy your veggies.

  2. I hope you get better soon. Keep it up with your photos though, very nice.
