In July we had one of the hottest, and driest months on record in a while. I tried to visit my garden, and water it regularly enough that nothing would wilt away. Then came August, and in the first few days of the month we received almost half of the average rainfall for the month. And the garden took to the back burner. Reggie told me after cutting the grass in the far corner of our yard, that the garden was looking a little sad. The next day I spent some time pulling weeds that were attempting to take over, and look what I found:
So I suppose that even though I forgot about my garden for a little while, it is still working away to grow and produce some delicious treats for us. I am excited for when the bigger veggies are ready to eat, and soon my very favourite treat will be upon us - pumpkin! I have never had a lot of luck growing them, so I usually buy them in the fall from the farmers market. mmmm!
How is your garden growing? Have you had any tasty treats yet?
