It has been a really busy couple of weeks... and I got a new camera so have tons of pictures for you!
I missed going up one weekend where the weather was so hot it finished off my corn and other vegetables. My corn looked like the mid-west crops.. so I have planted some more to see if I can sneak in another crop before it freezes.
I have 2 weeks off starting the week of Labor Day and I will be building raised beds to grow fall vegetables, like garlic, shallots, turnips and parsnips.
One interesting thing was I was out in the front yard and noticed a large snake skin on the walk that wasn't there the day before... so somewhere in my yard is a large rattlesnake with new skin. As long as he/she has moved on to my outer property, it is okay, but this was right by my front door.
Here are pictures of my flowers and the decimated garden.
