I love the fact that my garden has been taking care of itself the last week. With the bits of rain we've gotten, I haven't had to water. I pull a few hands full of weeds when I'm out there - barely putting a dent into the overgrowth of native grasses. But more or less, my garden is at a pretty independent stage.
All those bold tomatoes that have been sporting their hints of orange for weeks are finally turning red!
This little butternut is getting close too:
Shades of orange are beginning to show on my little pie pumpkins:
My green beans are doing well and I have lots of blossoms on my first planting again and my second planting are looking good- probably another week or so away from beans.
My white hostas are in bloom in my flower bed and I've gotten a couple stems of gladiolas back. I didn't dig up my bulbs at the end of last season as I should have, but apparently the peach glads are a hearty bunch!
