Well, there went another five weeks without blogging but I seem to be busier than ever now that gardens need work, friends are dropping by again and the property always needs cleaning up. I have never in my life seen so many weeds with all the sun and rain these days. But the plants are loving it all and looking great. I, on the other hand, am covered in mosquito bites.
Something ate our sunflowers so I won't have any this year.
Turkeys ate our cucs so I had to plant a second time.
The tomatoes, peppers, beans, peas, herbs and pumpkins are doing great.
My dahlias are keeping me happy with all their glorious blooms. Honestly, why didn't I grow them years ago. They are such fun to have in the garden. There are always blooms from July through to late fall. And I have favorites I'm hoping will have tubers the size of a minivan.
We had a break in the heat of late but its back again so the A/C will go on tomorrow. I hate air-conditioning but I know it's impossible to work outside and not have the relief of it when you come in. Plus the cats need it, too. Wilson and Cora are doing great...such good friends.
Always washing up from a snack.

Now I have to gush on my dahlias...

I'm picking dahlias everyday and if any one sets foot on my property they go home with a bouquet. lol
"Mom...he's in my basket."
Okay then...back to the garden...
Our pumpkin patch is doing well.
and we used old scaffolding to hang our peas on.
This photo taken awhile back.
It's loaded now with sugar snap peas.
And our beans are being enjoyed.
But our tomatoes have yet to turn red. I'm not sure why.
My plan was to clean the house today and vacuum but seeing this made me decide to bake instead. Do Not Disturb
So I'll close up wishing you all a great week ahead and a muffin or two.
Be well everyone.
