Too hot, too dry and too old pretty well sums up my gardening week last week!!! My rain barrel is empty and I have used city water but probably not enough. Makes the bill go up and up and up!! I am still able to harvest a bit of lettuce and the cherry and sungold tomatoes are ripening.
The raspberrys are getting smaller and fewer but the first part of the week was still okay. They need water!!!
Sad looking pepper but I harvested it because I needed one to use!
Harvesting cabbage and carrots.
Made up a batch of regular cole slaw to go with our meals and a batch of freezer cole slaw. We are enjoying our cabbage and carrots used this way!
My one little bush produced a few blueberries and there are just a few more ripening. Few more raspberries picked, two cucumbers, more cherry and sungold tomatoes and a zucchini!
This Rose Atari Scented Geranium didn't bloom from when I bought it last year. I kept it over the winter and started new ones. I don't know if this one is the original or not but happy to see it is going to bloom this year! It is in a pot in the ground in the fountain area.
The two blackberry bushes are starting to produce. I never know when I am suppose to pick them. If they pull off easy I pick and if they don't I leave them. Is that the way you do it? If I pick them too soon I notice they are bitter.
This is just a random picture along one of the fences. I transplanted the sunflowers that the birds planted and the cosmos came up from last year. I am thankful the perennials seem to keep blooming even though the weather has been so hot and dry. I have to admit this is not my best gardening year so far! But I will be right back out there trying again next year!! LOL Think positive!!!!!!
