Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Battling Heat and Humidity in the Garden

I have been battling high temperatures and humidity in the garden through this last heat wave that is gripping our area.  The result of this has been almost daily violent storms in the area all around us but not hitting us.  I've had to resort to deep watering every other day.  The tomatoes don't like the high heat so aren't ripening quite as quickly.  I've lost a few of my container plants but will be repotting those as so as the heat wave breaks.  I have a lot of fall plans for the garden but for now it seems I'm playing a waiting game for the weather to come around.

Happy Gardening!
