This is one hot and muggy summer in the midwest.
Our garden seems to like it!
Come take a peek at it with me!
We have zucchini
and yellow squash.
The watermelon vine has grass clippings around it to keep the weeds down.
Carrots are ready to be dug up
and the lettuce has gone to seed.
We just let it go--it's heirloom and the seeds will plant themselves!
We spent time this weekend putting cages around our tomato plants.
I hope they appreciate it--we have cuts and bruises and blisters to show for our efforts!
I've been adding straw to the walkways between the raised beds to hopefully reduce the amount of weeding I do every summer.
We let these onions go to seed so we can have some to plant next year.
Oh, basil, how I love you!
I planted marigolds partly because they're so cheerful, so easy to grow and because they're stinky. It's supposed to keep critters away... Who knows if it's true!
Speaking of critters, there's a cute one!
J2 loves playing in the garden, even when it's 90 degrees.
Our sweet corn has tasseled out.
That's a term I didn't know before moving to Iowa.
Oh, look! Another critter!
So where's the baby when I garden?
Napping in the stroller!
I'm done when he wakes up. Sometimes it's an hour, sometimes it's two.
Thanks for joining me on that virtual stroll through my garden!
