The garden is doing well. I have had tomatoes, a cucumber, some beans, and some peppers of late. There are, of course, lots of flowers.
I dropped a protective can over my late-planted okra, which is being eaten by an evil lagomorph.
My eggplants are beginning to recover from the yearly flea beetle attack and my sage is thriving and beautiful.
Last weekend, I planted some fall crops–peas, lettuce and turnips–and built an enclosure I hope will keep out the voles and the rabbits. Nothing has come up yet.
A few tomatoes are ripening, and I am hoping the surrounding flowers will distract.
Normally I head right to my garden and stay there, but today I took a little tour. Goodness there are some lovely gardens here.
There are also novel ways to hide tomatoes from bird, vole and squirrel depredation.
And melons as well.
There are lovely flowers all over.
Some are deliberately planted and others are part of the garden produce.
Some of the gardens are beautifully interplanted with flowers and vegetables.
And Derrick and Jackie are not the only people with owls in their garden!
I didn’t do much today except take pictures and drop a can over the okra because I was waiting for my Elfa installation in the kitchen. Wowsers, it satisfies my workplace and cookbook storing needs!
Next weekend I will be heading to Illinois to visit my family, so will not likely post or read your blogs most nights. But I’ll be back in touch the following week!
