Well, things are going fine with my 2018 vegetable garden – despite being away for 10 days and temperatures hovering around 100 here on the Kansas prairie (just across the river from the great city of Kansas City, MO).

It is had to see in the picture (below) but my raised bed garden is flourishing with lots of new growth since my last update.

It looks like I am going to have a ton of great tomatoes (right) and the basil is in full mid-summer foliage. The squash plants are really taking over and I hope they yield something, and the various pepper plants are growing high but little evidence of producing anything yet – but there is still time.
