Yes, the calendar reads October here too, but the weather here on the VA eastern shore resembles more like summer. This week several days have been VERY warm with daytime temps in the mid-80s and a humidity index that’s even higher.
This heat wave has kept veggies producing in the Frog & PenguINN garden.
The garden caretaker gnome and frog keep watch over the garden for Grenville.
So, what’s STILL producing?
Tomatoes which are still green, but Grenville is hoping these will redden soon for his favorite ‘mater sandwich . . .
There’s still lots of fresh rosemary and some basil.Meanwhile the surprise volunteer butternut squash continues to grow.
And there was another unexpected surprise on the patio in the past week — marigolds reseeded and re-bloomed with perfect fall colors.
