Garden Update...

Super hot and dry,
we water from the creek.
Sunflowers,
gourds,
peas,
cucumbers,
and watermelons.
All still alive but not so pretty,
they'll still be good to eat.

Your garden looks great, Gail, in spite of the heat. Do you water every day or every other day?

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Your garden looks much farther ahead than mine but I am hoping. We have had a lot of rain lately so I hope I will be posting veggie shots someday as good as yours. B

Gail, your garden looks like mine, a tinsy bit worn and tired, but still yours looks good. My pond was almost dry; getting good rain this morning. I can't believe it. Standing on the porch drinking a cup of coffee listening to that sweet sound of rain on a tin roof; how good is that. Debi

We have had to water our garden as well but have gotten a good rain or two lately. The garden is still looking a bit tired and wilty though ! Still picking right along though : )

Your garden looks wonderful Gail, despite the extreme heat! Wanna share some of those green beans?? lol

It's a beautiful garden. I have a feeling I'm going to have 59,000 tomatoes all ripening at the same exact time.

Still, it's the buttercup squash I've got my eye on. Can't wait!

About this time of year the garden begins to look a bit on the tired side. Heat is rising, roots expanding, and watering is picked up a notch. We don't have the luxury of rain or a pond, but we've got an incredibly large aquifer underneath us. Keep up the good work! It was great hearing from you yesterday, Thank you!

Looks like everything is holding up quite well under all that heat!

I am ready for some winter.

By the looks of that temp, HOT is an understatement! Garden looks good though. I was just too lazy to even get one started this year and now I regret that decision...ah well...live and learn.

Happy weekend!

120+ degrees--that's way too hot!

Your garden looks beautiful, though. :)

What an abundance of food you have. The peas look very good. It would be fun to shell those. Do you need help?

Sue said...

Looks good to me!

=)

Well I think it looks very pretty and I like all of the good stuff you have grown.
