Our Wild and Crazy Garden

Oh, this garden. I just can’t keep up with it lately. Kennedy and I took these photos last week and it looks nothing like this now.

It’s suddenly much, much fuller.

This is the time of year when the corn grows taller by the hour,

And you give up on fighting weeds and bugs altogether.

You just run out with little planks of wood everyday and try to cradle the melons and cucumbers and keep them safe until they’re ready.

And take a big metal bowl to fill up with your harvest as fast as you can before the sun gets too hot and your courage for dealing with bees buzzing around your head wears out.

And then you forget once again to rinse off your veggies BEFORE coming inside and scream at the little buggies that come crawling out into your sink.

Yup, it’s exactly that time of year in our garden right now.

    Along with the joys of gardening come all the bugs and weeds. Our garden doesn’t look too pretty right now, but it’s still producing plenty. Your post reminded me that I need to put some boards under the little pumpkins that are growing.

    My garden always starts off looking like a magazine, and then by mid July I don’t want to go out in the heat and humidity.
    I love your land and lush green.
    Thanks for joining Tutorials Tips and Tidbits with your garden goings-on!

    YOur garden looks magnificent! So full of nature’s bounty.

    I see that you join quite a number of parites, but thought you might want to join Seasonal Sundays as it’s a bit different. The link goes up at 7 pm Saturday night. Hope you’ll join in the fun.

    I do consider all the ideas you have offered for your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still,
    the posts are too brief for starters. Could you please extend them a bit
    from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
