With warm weather here to stay until sometime in November, everything in the garden has started taking off. I’m finally getting tomatoes and am hoping I can get a decent crop in before the really hot weather in July. Hopefully I will be able to keep the more vining and heat tolerant varieties longer.
There’s a Rose of Sharon that drapes itself across our side of the fence and is blooming profusely right now. The buds drop off and fall onto our potting bench which makes me have to pick the blossoms out every couple of days. We’re probably going to move the potting bench out from underneath the bush soon.
For the most part the flower beds are coming into their own. We’ve got a few gaps that I would like to fill. Some of those gaps are plants that are continuously being eaten down by the deer. They recover only to be chowed down upon once again. It is incredibly frustrating.
There’s been a lot going on in the yard and I’m hoping that as the summer goes on I’ll be able to share what is being harvested out of the veggie patch!
