Well, the garlic flakes I sprinkled around my garden have apparently lost their zing. And the fox I saw running across the yard the other day is apparently not a very effective hunter.
Bunnies got my pole beans! Most were chewed off near the ground, but I thought this photo was the most picturesque of the lot. 🙂
My cantaloupe and acorn squash didn’t come up. I think the extreme heat may have interfered with their germination. It’s pretty late to be planting them, but my seed packet assured me I could plant them in June in my area, so I gave it a shot. Anyway, the cucumber did sprout. It’s a good thing we have a LONG growing season!
We are getting a break today from days in the mid-nineties. It’s only in the 80’s today, which is normal for summer. The scorching weather is supposed to be back in
a few days, though. I am extremely grateful that we have had partially cloudy days to helps us bear the solar onslaught–and I’m sure that it helps keep the trees and plants from frying. And the REAL blessing is that we do get thunderstorms now and then which keep us from experiencing the extreme drought others are suffering. Thanks, God! 🙂
That’s all I have to ramble about today. Here are some photos of real plants in my toy garden!
