It has gotten HOT again at Garden on Sherlock Street. Our mild August with rain is over. Has been for a couple of weeks. Good news: our drought status has been moved from 'Extreme' to 'Severe' due to the rains earlier this summer. Glad for every drop.
We're harvesting squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, green beans and peppers. I take the extras to work and they all seem to find grateful people. Watching the winter squash plants make fruit and looking forward to harvesting them when it is time. Most excited that this year, there will be pumpkins.
Still waiting to see any hummingbirds. I keep putting out fresh sugar water.
The butterflies are increasing in number. It's just too hot to chase them around the garden with a camera.
We're suppose to cool down for Labor Day.
Life is good at GonSS. It is certainly late summer with the heat, but signs of autumn are starting to appear.
Almost time for the monthly tour photos. Stay tuned.
