I have been keeping the lettuce going all summer by planting new rows each month. It is worth it to keep up the lettuce for that fresh salad whenever I want it. I have the lettuce planted in the shade....that helps a lot during the summer. The lettuce will go to seed early if they feel too much heat.

The sunflowers are ripe and I have been giving them to the chickens to supplement their feed.
The corn was an failure. The chickens were attacking the plants and I must have had some bad seeds because most of them didn't sprout. The Indian corn did pretty well. It was a specialty and I kinda planted it at the last minute. I was hoping for more but was excited with what I got.
The cucumbers are growing, our future pickles......
