The garden was looking pretty sad for a while. Something, a bug I guess, was eating things. It ate all the cantaloupe seedlings and did some damage to the tomatoes and cucumbers. I don’t know what happened but things suddenly started looking better last week.
For next year I want to remember to find a different way to tack down the garden paper. It really helps cutting down on the weeds but when something large is placed on it water accumulates underneath and the paper rots away to nothing. I also want to try planting our own seeds in pots in the house in March or April. The plants really need a good head start before they go in the ground. As it is we haven’t had anything ripen and it is already the end of July.
I don’t know what is different about this year but the Hydrangea is covered with flowers. In the past we’ve only had a few flowers. The flowers themselves are smaller than they have been in the past though. It’s funny how things are different every year.
