It certainly has been a challenging year for growing almost anything. While I do not usually water either my lawn or the perennials in my garden, this year I did break down and water the flowers a couple times. It was either that or see them collaspe completely from lack of rain. Still, I didn’t water the lawn bc I was sure once the rain came the grass would recover. And while it has started growing again it would not take any prizes for being attractive. There are large areas that probably will remain bald until I reseed next spring. :(
The small vegetable garden I have did not fare much better. The early lettuce and radishes did not produce. Even the old stand-by onion sets have only produced skinny green onions. No cucs at all, or beets. And I bought new seed but nothing appeared. I have to admit though, I have a nice crop of beautiful tomatoes.
Here’s afew other shots of the flower gardens….
