9. How does it grow? Well...

Pretty mixed right now. Here it is late June and still getting upper 40s overnight so the tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers and corn are lagging. But with highs near 90 the greens are already bolting. Aaargh! Beans, watermelons, cukes and squash all slow to germinate. On the other hand - Blackberry vines so loaded they look like grape clusters.
Garlic could be huge this year; some of the stalks are about 3/4 inch in diameter. We've been harvesting scapes, cooking some, giving the rest away.
On the flower side, iris are done until the rebloomers come back, cannas starting to bloom. Roses doing pretty well except for the pale yellow. We think maybe the buds are getting sunburned.
