Ours has weeds, veggies, weeds, wildflowers and weeds.
Did I mention there are LOTS of weeds?
A fellow blogger, John (Don’t unplug your hub) recently asked if we had neglected The Frog & PenguINN gardens during our recent road trips. The answer is no and our friend, Possum, came over and watered the veggie gardens. BUT, our 2-week RI road trip to meet our new granddaughter gave the weeds and wildflowers free reign, especially with lots of heat, humidity and lack of rainfall. These visuals show how the F&P gardens looked on our return.
Weeds had overrun the veggie garden. Green zucchini, yellow squash and cukes were still producing when we left, but no more. The corn was done before we left.Tomatoes and peppers are still coming in strong; some of the tomatoes have sacrificed themselves for homemade tomato sauce that’s been frozen for winter use.
Wildflower gardens really went wild. That’s a birdbath in the lower right corner – it was once easy to refill.Out in the orchard, the peaches were picked before we left and distributed to family during the road trip. The apple trees are producing well and there’s a few pears too. Grenville is hoping to get enough to bake an apple pie soon – me too!
