scenes from my community garden
i'll admit that i haven't been the best at keeping up with both of my gardens. i've been extremely busy these past few weeks, and it's been particularly hot and rainy (meaning that i don't have to get over there to water and that it's been extremely unpleasant to be outdoors these past few days). so this afternoon, with a slight break in the heat, i decided i'd better go check on how things were progressing over there. i clearly need to weed badly, but otherwise, i am really excited about all the growth that's taken place over the past week and a half since i was over there last. beans are growing, cucumbers and squash and melons are flowering, potato towers are towering, tomatoes are exploding with blossoms and big green tomatoes, peppers are emerging, and lettuce is going to seed. i am beyond excited that it truly does look like this is going to be my best tomato year yet (heck, i'm pretty sure it's going to be my best garden year yet!).
despite how well things are growing, i definitely will need to make some time over the next few days for a little bit of maintenance.
do you have more than one garden? how do you balance your time between them?
