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!

Overgrown Garden Beds

Overgrown Garden Bed
August 19, 2010

This morning I ended up watering the raised beds again.  Rain is predicted this evening but I'm not taking any chances.  We've had rain all around us but not actually hitting us for the past couple of weeks now.  Despite the cooler weather the last couple of days the heat and humidity have shot right back up there today so watering was a must.

As I puttered in the garden this morning it dawned on me what a mess the raised beds were.  The plants obviously have not read the square foot gardening book.  This is the time of year my raised beds look unruly to say the least!  I really need to get out there to do a bit of trimming and staking.  For the most part the plants are looking quite healthy though.

Happy Gardening!
