It's been a super dry August. I put water on the garden last week, but haven't looked at it this week. Brian said that he's noticing that people have their gardens all pulled up.
It is getting cold at night. I'm not sure when we need to bring in the herbs and get the rest pulled. I still have some beets in there, lots of tomatoes- I'm sure more squash, cucumbers and zucchini. We pulled the lettuce that was going to seed. There are still some carrots in there and LOOK!
Big Buddy's okra! They aren't as big as they were in Texas (everything is big in Texas), but we do have some okra in the fridge and some on the plants.
I really do need to go check on them, but I got a bit of a flu bug or something, so I was laying low this week.
Oh, yeah, we could have some green peppers in there too! It's been so nice to not have to be running to the city for veggies. I'll have to do more carrots next year and cucumbers.
We've had lots of fluttery things in the area. This one just wanted to lay in the sunshine and didn't bat an eye as I took his picture.
It's a bit of a jungle mess.
I've been surprised at how much we have liked the green beans, since they have never been a household favorite. But the kids love them raw and they are amazing to me cooked too.
