Garden Time

Holy cow ... what a summer!!
It has been so hot and extremely dry it is a challenge to keep everything healthy.
I have lost a few things in the veg garden but for the most part we have been able to nibble on a lot .
Our town has been on water restrictions most of the summer so here at 44 we have been doing our part.
It is extremely irritating tho when we see a neighbor up the street from us washing down his driveway and washing his car.
There is a fine if you use water outside of watering times but it is 55 bucks ---- hardly a deterrent.
We will continue to do our part and keep our fingers crossed we get rain soon.

 
 Lots of bees enjoy the oregano flowers




Looks like we will be eating butternut squash
 
 The wasps can't even wait for me to put the sweet sugar syrup in the hummer feeders!!


 
 
 




Found this flax plant in amongst the Lady's Mantle.

Another gift from one of our feathered friends..

I threw my gardening gloves over a plant stake and this is how it landed.
I guess my garden loves me!!
