Knee High by the 4th of July

My cute little row of sweet corn was as high as my head on July 4, here in northeast Illinois, USDA Zone 5. We had nice amounts of rain and sunshine throughout June allowing all the garden plants to take off nicely. Now that the July heat is upon us, the tomatoes and peppers are finally producing. This raised bed garden box was built by my husband, and includes a bunny fence. However, I have to admit we have not had a rabbit population here for a number of years now due to coyotes, a natural predator.
