I drug all of my big pots off the porch so that they could get the rain. A few weeks ago, I made casual tuteurs out of my vitex prunings. I think I may switch to vitex over the bamboo I usually use. It was nice and flexible and, more importantly, on premise.
I like tucking plants in unexpected places. I have this chartreuse creeping jenny in dutch clogs and in clay chimney pipes around the porch.
In July we usually slow down with the garden, harvesting, mulching, and thinking about starting fall gardens in late August. I need to do a lot of weeding and compost additions, and I'm thinking about ripping up my front raised beds and reconfiguring them. The wood is beginning to rot, so I'll need to do something at season's end, no matter what. What are your summer garden plans?
