Been getting enough rain here in August that my yard is now nice and green and we've had to do just minimal watering of the garden plants. Today I finished what I started yesterday and got the weeds pulled around what's all still going strong and used my new method lol of using the weedeater on the rest. Everything is looking pretty good but Cheyenne noticed that the tomato plants in his back bed by the house had a few bugs so I've got to get them treated tomorrow. Those plants, though in mostly full sun, have been slower to produce ripe tomatoes than the ones in my little garden on the south side. They do have a ton of green ones right now and most are old heirloom varieties so I'm not sure if it's the plant type or the location.
I've got to get to pickle and relish canning as the cucumbers are taking over. I did find several on the ground vines that have chew marks and we've been seeing rabbits in the yard. Ol Red and Lizzy need to step it up, the yard coonhounds are forgetting their trashy ways!
I have decided that next year I am going to wait a little while longer to plant a few of the herbs like my dill and cilantro. It is almost done by the time it is time to pickle and can salsa. Every year even though most of us have been doing this most of our lives we find some way we can improve our outcome or method.
I always look forward to a little bit of cooler weather that comes with fall but there is nothing better than all the fresh produce going straight from the garden to the dinner table!
Happy gardening everyone,
