It's a Jungle out There!
Although all of the recent rain may not have been good for some things at the plots.....it's definitely turned the neglected home garden in to a jungle!
This is one part of the Herb Garden
Do you think I need to get some things trimmed and dried????
Look at this Happy Sage Bush!
Here's a volunteer tomato plant growing along side of some dried coriander that should be harvested and over some oregano and chives!
The Spaghetti Squash vines are still doing great!
This is a picture from my neighbors yard. There are three plants growing along the fence.
I have found 3 more big squash and a few babies!
Here's a view of the beds from the deck
The MWC, front right, is really taking over...This is after I trimmed it way back on Monday!
Out of control Basil
This is the bed where the garlic and peas were planted earlier in the season.
Now there are cucumbers along the edge and bush (which are out of control trying to vine) dried beans. Spinach was sown in the dirt area on Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully we will get a good crop or even a small crop would be appreciated as the spring spinach was a complete failure!
There are still plenty of these around that should ripen and keep us in eating tomatoes for awhile.
This is a view of the beds from the back.
As you can see I did get out there and trim back the tomato plants on the left.
So, is there anything out of control in your life....besides the economy and our goverment??
