Summer Winding Down

No rain plus extreme, persistent heat has not been great for growing vegetables or anything else! Even with the drip irrigation, there is nothing to replace the rain. The summer squash is about done. The last plantings are not yielding great quantities. We do have plenty of tomatoes,beans,butternut and spaghetti squash. I've posted a recipe for spaghetti squash which is really good and a healthy alternative to pasta.
The good news is the fall garden is going in soon. I'm looking forward to greens again! I'll have some of the same varieties as spring plus some new ones to try.
