I just dug the garlic from my garden last night. For those of you who are keeping score at home, that is a solid month earlier than I normally do. The peas have all flowered and fruited and withered already. The chokecherries are done. The onions, except where I planted too close to the walnut trees, look like they usually do in the middle of August. The dill, and oregano, and cilantro is going to seed. I am already taking in zucchini. Everything that the heat has not withered seems ahead of itself, and I feel as if the weather should soon be breaking into fall, except that it is only now mid-way through July.
