Things are getting ugly

The squash plants have melted.  With the exception of the cherry and one volunteer, unidentified plant, the tomatoes dried up and gave up (after providing the majority of their fruit to the dogs, who learned to pick tomatoes, and to the voles, who learned to climb tomato plants).  Next year, some sort of fencing is in order. 

One row of late beans is still putting out new flowers and tender young beans.  One cayenne pepper plant bravely forges ahead, along with two basil plants.  It was a DRY spring and early summer, restricting second and third plantings, so I have an unusually empty garden.  Time to plan for fall crops.  Late August to September will be here before I know it!
