As we hit mid July and the heat in the Willamette valley starts to go up we look at my little garden. Some has done surprisingly well for how early it is still. The corn is mammoth for how early it is. I always remember my Grandfather saying that knee high by the 4th of July was the goal. Mine was 6 feet tall by then. The only thing that is not doing well is my cannary melon. It is barely growning. But it looks nice and healthy just very small.
