Yesterday we had a day in the 80's , so I spent most of it out in the garden trying to play catch-up with the weeds and also to harvest the onions. I had a decent crop, despite the lack of rain and I have plenty for myself and even some to share. I just used the last onion from last year's harvest two days ago, so it was perfect timing.
The 99 cent garden is STILL the only thing cranking out the vegetables. I'm still waiting on green beans from my regular plots. This all got sent to the neighbors down the road. I'm leaving the rest of the beans to go to seed. The cukes are loaded, so there will be plenty more of them and there should be another pound or two of carrots yet.
The Chandler blueberries started bearing this week. Freakish sized monsters as big as quarters. Delicious too. Don wants me to get more plants of these. I don't know where to put them. The temptation is to replace the Patriots with these. They are incredible.
The 'Major Wheeler' lonicera is making the hummingbirds crazy by the garden gate.
Look how the edges look like they've been "stitched". I'm certainly hoping to get lots of "babies" from this--it is replacing my regular Stachys.
By the back door. You'll notice not much in the way of pots this year--it's been hard on me to "not garden" this year, but next year---yep, NEXT YEAR look out.
They're calling for rain today, but we've gone weeks without so I'm not getting my hopes up.
Thank you so much to those who offered suggestions on why my camera wasnt' "giving up" the photos. It worked and I am truly grateful for the whole darn bunch of you smart people.
