porch garden (end of july)


Oh my lovely porch garden.  I took these photos before going on vacation last week, and I'm so glad I did because when I came back half my plants were dead.  Between the heat, no rain, and some knocks from the beagle boys some of my plants didn't stand a chance.  Luckily I have these photos to remember how nice everything looked right at the end of July.  And who knows, some of the "dead" plants might perk up, and I could have some more photos to share of my garden at the end of August.  I'm hoping that I can actually harvest some of the tomatoes, squash, nasturtium, or cucumbers I've been growing all summer - but if not, at least I got to watch them grow.  Which every gardener knows is the next best thing to actually eating your veggies.
