Photo below - A very nice flower of bitterweed. I often grab an entire plant, and eat it right on the spot. Hey, it's good stuff! Heh. Just don't let your cows get into any, or their milk will be sour...
Photo below - Poison oak. It is everywhere near the edge of the woods, and I stay away from it most of the time. (Notice that I said most of the time)
Photo below - A beautiful flower from a bramble of some type, that's located behind the new melon box. Even though it doesn't produce any small fruit, it's real good at attracting bees!
Photo below - Here's the 2 cherokee purple tomato plants. Notice the light-green color that the one in the forefront possesses. It may be early blight, iron chlorosis, or something similar. Good thing the sucker removed from the healthy plant in the background is doing nicely, because i'll probably need it.
Photo below - Honeysuckles! Although the vines are very aggressive at taking over an area - the flowers sure do smell good!
Lastly, the compost bins - as a new cycle of decomposition begins. I'll start turning the piles in a few days, if it will ever quit raining. The "greens" are plentiful, and this should be an easy cycle to complete. I see no problems in getting the compost finished by September.
Family will begin to arrive from Kentucky and South Carolina tomorrow, and EG will most likely be pretty involved with family activities for the next 3-4 days. I'll still try to sneak a post in, if possible though...
In closing, i'd like to say "Thanks" to all of my readers, and people that have chosen to follow my blog. It's good to know that my crazy methods and ideas are interesting to some. Ha! Also, i'd like to say hi to the couple that lives at the end of Duncan Creek Road. I will gladly give you a tour of the garden anytime you want.
Take care, and happy gardening!
