365 Joys- July 17th 2015


Our garden is having ups and downs.  The weeds are growing like crazy because between extreme heat and extreme weather we haven't weeded as much as we should have.  Again.  We had a weeding session today and we'll try again.

It really looks better than it did.

GEDC0105 Deer, groundhogs, and squirrels of all things have eaten our sunflowers and the tops of the cucumber plants and bits of the green bean plants.  We are researching ways to deter (and get rid of) them here in Kansas City limits.

We have lots of green, red and yellow peppers but I don't remember which plants are which and all the peppers are green at first!  We have 3 or 4 jalapeños.  Tiny ones.

We have ONE tomato but lots of tomato flowers.  We have lots of renegade radishes that we never planted (this year).

GEDC0110 It was good working with the kids.

  1. Gardening is such a happy adventure for kids. :) Mine love picking the squash (we're getting about 1 a day) and are keeping a close eye on tomatoes that ought to start turning red any day!
