What’s Happening in the Garden- August 8, and a Little Check In

I’ve been so busy for the past ten days or so. I feel like I run through the garden, pull a few weeds, pick something and keep going. Next week looks like it will be kind of quiet and close to home. No one is at camp, no big commitments. I’m hoping to cook, bake and  freeze produce. I may even try to do some canning again. If any or all of this happens, you’ll likely be reading about it!  Here’s a quick view of the garden this morning.

I’ll start with the green monster at the moment. I did get a new, larger rug (I’ll post a pic when I do finish this project) and I’m thinking about hanging the old one above the love seat. I’m watching the trash for just the right garden gate to hang here but I haven’t found it yet.  I’m working on it…one thing at a time. I’ll keep you posted if something great happens here!

We have just one more gladioli blooming. I was hoping for a dramatic presentation right along the fence but so far this is really slow. 

This Morning Glory appeared and surprised me. I didn’t plant Morning Glories this year and I was missing them. I don’t see the Scarlet Runner Bean plants that I did plant here? guess the Morning Glories won the war.

The cabbage is a little bit chomped on the edges but I think it will be fine if we keep a close eye on it.

The pumpkin plant is taking over the corner! I love when that happens!

We have one pumpkin and I think there are a few more hiding in there. If nothing gets to them we should have some for Halloween.

Zinnias are happy, and that bolted lettuce needs to be pulled 🙂

Here’s a wider shot that I just took a few minutes ago. 

I love this time of the year!!

Hope you get outside and enjoy everything!

Love,  Michele

  1. I love when you visit PJ! Someday we’ll have to visit each other’s gardens in person. My husband found those watering cans in different places. He loves to look for things for the garden.
