I can’t believe it is already feeling and looking like fall! Where did the time go?
Lots of photos to view in this set from the summer months.
The annuals did well and the baskets and containers thrived. We chose to concentrate on lettuce, tomatoes and potatoes for food items. The former did very well. We ended up not having any potatoes, as we had a slug infestation. That’s very disappointing as we normally have enough our own home grown potatoes to last us until almost the end of winter.
Getting enough water to everything got harder and harder as we went though summer as the drought hit. Most things adapted well enough. It continued being cool, just like early spring for the most part and I have really loved that.
One of the best investments was putting in a tremendous number of impatiens in the back containers. They were glorious all summer and are so easy to care for, even during the drought.
The new fence is half way in. It was easier to put in than we thought it would be. The tree roots we thought would be a problem, were not a problem at all. We’ll finish that project next year in the spring of 2021. We are very happy with the look of the fence and continued privacy as we are so close to our neighbors on all sides of the house.
I’m trying out a new gallery/slideshow to show you the photos this year. I hope you like that change!
Late summer to fall photos to come very soon!
