Welcome back to another edition of Tuesdays In The Garden! This week, we are excited to share with you what we are growing and harvesting in our July gardens. It's lovely to see the yard full of color again. The veggies and herbs are thriving, and I'm loving watching all the pollinators make their daily rounds. The only qualm I have would be the water restriction in our area due to the drought we are in. We could certainly use a bit more rain here in zone 6a New England. I'm hoping to start seeing the skies open up more, and I wouldn't even mind a few thunder storms. Come enjoy a visual tour of what's happening in my garden right now!

What are you growing and harvesting right now? Are you enjoying fresh salads or homemade salsa yet? Tell me all about it in the comment section below or tweet me @thefreckledrose. I'm really looking forward to some pepper, tomato and bean harvests soon! I'm also waiting on my new gladiolus to start blooming. I absolutely love cutting them and making some fresh floral arrangements. I hope you are having a wonderful summer!
