We never say the "Dead Of Summer" Lush, bounty, hot, steamy, colorful, summer words that we wish for in the "Dead Of Winter"
Can you believe I am still planting, as I cut back there are empty places, and like painting emptiness bothers me. So I buy leftovers at the garden center and feed them, coaz them and they respond and will look good for the late summer garden which I like better than the tall plants of summer that tend to fall this way and that if not staked. Too big a garden for all that staking and can you imagine the frustration when it all has to be cut back in late October, fussing with stakes and ties when you just want to hurry and get it cleaned up.
We are enjoying the fresh vegetables, it is a huge treat to go out late afternoon and gather what you want for dinner. Also gathering of a fresh bouquet is the best as I like a vase of flowers in the kitchen.
These are a bit blurry, I must of not been still enough or something????
