Been harvesting my garlic. Silver rose soft neck variety. I save the seeds and plant again in fall.My beans have petered out. What tomatoes I have will be all I get with the scorching heat. Regular cucumbers been sucky, but the Armenian ones have gone nuts. harvested a 3 footer.

soft neck garlic is good for mild climates with little or no winter. Hard neck for the rest of us.

After I got ours in the ground last fall, I read that most commercial garlic is treated so it won't sprout... I thought I was buying from a guy who grew his own but then out at the farm I saw big bags of garlic sitting there. Scammed!
 
So I don't know what we're going to get but it looks healthy.

I just planted whatever I had on hand from the grocery. I think it was Australian or Spanish purple skin. I think I'll try to get some more going.

{#Daisy} One of the kinds I planted didn't do anything but I have a few of another kind in a pot that are looking promising. We plant some things in winter when we actually get some rain but they need to be able to survive some frost, too.

Hey Jrzy! Out tomato plants (potted) seem to be doing well, lot of flowers and three 'maters already but... down low, several leaves are yellowish. Should we snip these off or leave them alone?
