The Garden in July
July 22, 2010
I love my summertime garden! July is absolutely glorious. I’ll tell the story with pictures.
I have to start with the girls. Here, they’re going crazy after I’ve turned the compost. Worms, pill bugs, earwigs and beetles- a veritable feast!
The corn is really tall- over my head. The squirrels are already tearing into the ears. If only bee bee guns were legal in Belmont . . . I know, I know, all my animal loving friends- but they’re eating my veggies!
The tomatoes are getting bigger. I’m probably a month away from getting good tomatoes.
Who knew that artichoke blossoms were so beautiful?
The sunflowers are absolutely spectacular. Way over my head- maybe eight to ten feet tall. Why haven’t I grown these beauties before??? I was concerned about the wind toppling them over. But, they’ve done very well!
The green beans are blossoming.
And we’re starting to get a few beans.
Truly, July is glorious- I love gardening!!!
