Crazy Garden!

The secret to getting a summer garden harvest when it's 105+ for many days:
Keep the water timer going.
Walk away and ignore the whole thing.
Looks like I'm going to get Granny Jensen's sweet relish made after all!

I am counting the days to nice weather again....64 days to go.

I don't know how you keep up the momentum. You are a master gardener in my book
I was so excited in the spring, anticipating all the harvest, now now my garden is producing like crazy but a like a mini-jungle.
I wrestled with my crook-neck squash plant yesterday.
He won.

Wow, what a small world. I can't believe they are in your Ward. I just love Dusty and Chelsea (mostly I know Chelsea). It is such a sad, sad thing.

Well done Marilyn! :)

We thought the water timer was working just fine in July because our sprinklers and bubblers were coming on...but NOT the drip system. Oh, NOOO! Before we knew it, we lost a large red tree rose that was about 12 years old, as well as a gorgeous cape plumbago shrub that we just planted in the spring. Bummer! :P

Oh, I wish I could send you some of the rain we've been having.
Those look wonderful!
