You may have heard that it’s been hot here. Even for me, it’s been hot. Just walking outside, not even exerting myself, I started sweating. But it’s already broken, thank goodness. The plants are looking a bit tired of the heat.
I took a walk around the garden, which I don’t normally do, looking at other people’s plots this week. Sunflowers!!! They are so lovely. I can almost feel them smiling when I look at them.
Someone, a better gardener than I, has eggplant! My eggplant have not been successful the past few years.
Someone is growing what may well be winter squash. And lovely they are!
Another gardener has planted artichokes , which I did not realize looked so much like thistles at a certain stage. Their foliage always makes me think of Audrey the man-eating plant from Little Shop of Horrors.
The bees are thriving under the care of their beekeeper.
And I’m enjoying the flowers they work on.
This week I plan to clear some things out so I can have space to plant some fall crops. We’ll see how that goes, as the whole garden is rife with evil bunnies with glowing eyes.
I hope you enjoy your week!
