Blueberries, corn, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes...

Oooh hooo... the temperatures these days...
The highs oscilate between 35 and 36 degrees....
Scorching.... burning.... brutal...
Each day during the weekends when I do the garden, I need to change my garden clothes three to four times, alternating between two sets of clothes...
Had planted three blueberry seedlings some years ago...
This year, they are fruiting quite substantially...
Each day, we get to harvest a little bit of the fruits...
We take them with our yogurt for breakfast...
Corn is really doing well, despite being attacked by pests...
We love the taste of home-grown corn so much that we decided to buy more seeds...
They are now beginning to germinate and we hope to see some harvest in October....
Planted only one eggplant this season...
They are heavy feeders and they need quite a bit of water....
Next season, I shall add one more seedling as my sweeto haato is beginning to like eggplants...
As with the eggplant, I have only one zucchini plant....
It is just sufficient for the two of us...
Tomatoes are a regular member at our potager...
We can't get enough of them...
My missus sometimes cooks some lovely Ratatouille with the tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant together with some other ingredients...
