|All the tender crops were harvested on Saturday. Notice the weeds in front, |
this is how all the gravel paths looked when I returned from Alaska.
Someone asked a question on how my garden survived while I was in Alaska. The answer is one of the neighbors down the street would stop and hook up one of my many soaker hose I setup before I went north. My water bill for July was $107.00 and August was $160.00. The city I live in did not put any watering restriction on during the drought. I ask the clerk at the water department about it and her reply was if it had lasted much long they would have done it. The local news stations did report that some nearby private wells did go dry this summer.
|Another section that needs weeding.|
|The grape arbor by brother and I put up last spring. |
I put down mulch but it is not keeping the grass from invading it.
|Winter Squashes: The three Waltham butternut are in front behind them is Delicata. |
On the right side is the acorn squash; the green colored ones are Table Queen and
the cream ones are Forkhook.
