PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE WEEDS IN THESE PHOTOS, THO I CAN ASSURE YOU THEY ARE NOT A FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION!!!
Tomato garden gone wild.
I am now reaping the problems of planting too close together. You can't see the tomatoes for the overgrowth! We finally took some yellow "DO NOT CROSS THIS LINE" tape, and tried to bind them up off the ground. That, along with some heavy boat rope, seems to be doing the job.
Note to self:
LEARN TOMATO PLANT SELF-CONTROL BY NEXT SPRING.
I am thinking these are four-o'clocks, but too lazy to check my books.
Whatever they are, don't they look like they glow in the dark?

The boat in the background, unfortunately, does NOT belong to us!

Yes, indeedy, that is very dry weedy stuff growing there. We have not put actual grass in, but act as if it is grass and mow it when it gets out of hand.
The dog days of summer are upon us, and it is really too hot to do anything in the garden except pluck some tomatoes and a few herbes, and run the sprinkler 1st thing in the morning. This has been a really fun gardening year for me, as we made a few significant changes in the yard, and I hate to see it coming to an end. With the new pool in the backyard, I am spending less time in the front, where the gardens are, and more time lolly-gagging on the deck with a good book or two.
What are YOU doing to keep cool where you are???
