The August Garden

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done a garden update. Our garden is certainly producing. Things are a little wild and out of control, especially the tomatoes. Ellie goes into the garden daily and helps herself to handfuls of cherry tomatoes. “Mama, can I eat another one please?” We have mint and the occasional strawberry still. We have a very large pumpkin growing in the back and hops climbing almost all the way up to the roof. It’s very dry around here and we try not to over-water, but things still seem to be pushing through the dryness and heat and growing. My flower bed is full of wildflowers I had sprinkled in there from months past. We have roses growing and lemons a plenty. We are enjoying watching all the buggy visitors come and go and especially watching the butterflies fly through. We have seen a swallowtail visit the lemon and orange tree almost on a daily basis the past few weeks. So much life and beauty.

  1. It looks wonderful Summer. I love seeing Ellie in the garden, so cute! Reece does the same out in our garden, asking “can I please pick this and eat it”

  2. What a wonderful backyard with so much color and wildness. Love each photo of various flowers, zinnia, roses, and that special flower washing off her beautiful tomato. I can just taste it.
