This will probably be the only veggie left standing in our garden this year. Hubby discovered late yesterday that some little critter was devouring my cucumbers. The other things we've planted haven't fared well with all the rain. Our garden doesn't drain well. Next year I hope we can try some raised beds. With a tall fence around them! Or just forget the whole thing, except for the tomatoes which usually do well, and buy from the local Farmer's Market.
So far I'm having much better luck with the flowers. However, that is subject to change, I know. We will have to make sure they are watered when needed and in this current heatwave we're experiencing, that is every day. Everything is looking good at the moment.
The same flower bed. The top photo is looking up toward the tomato garden near the house and the next is looking down from the tomato bed. Because of our walkout basement, the ground slopes on each side of a retaining wall. Our patio is almost the length of the house and 24 feet out and it can hold a lot of flowers so I have almost 30 flower pots on the patio that require a lot of watering in this heat!
The above Stella is in a different flower bed, but I do have Stellas in the above garden also, besides the Wave Petunias and Verbena, there is a Black-eyed Susan, Delphinium, and Knockout Rose. There is a type of Spirea that we transplanted from a row we took out of the south side of the house.
Anyone having problems with posting photos in Blogger? It has taken forever to upload and I can't post photos side by side as I once did. Maybe I should go back to the old Editor? If you have a better way of putting photos on your blog, especially side by side, please share your knowledge!! Thank you!
Until next time...
