September Tour 2014

Front Garden


Back Garden

Side Garden

Vegetable Garden




  1. Thankful for your rain. We finally rec'd about 1/2" on Sunday.
    Wishing you a nice week.

  2. Your vegetable garden looks so good! The squash bugs got into my squash and cucumbers, and the tomato plants are starting to wilt from the blight. Fortunately, there are still plenty of tomatoes ripening on the vine, and I don't think my husband is too sad that we won't be eating any more yellow squash:)

  3. Happy Labor Day... Hope you are having a great day. We finally got some rain here this weekend (which we needed)--but this week promises to be a hot one... I'm SO ready for Fall...

    Your yard/gardens look great. Even with your drought problem earlier, I'll bet you had a good summer...


  4. I'm glad to see things looking so green still. You must be getting some more consistent rains? Hopefully your drought will soon be easing.
    The garden looks full of goodies. Enjoy!

  5. Happy September to your Sherlock Street yard, garden & home :) I'm particularly fond of the grasses growing in your side yard! I'm curious! Do you cut them down in the fall - or next spring?

    1. Rebecca,
      I leave them up all through winter and cut them down in March. They hold up well in the snow and give a little more interest.

  6. GonSS, your gardens always look so nice. My are totally out of control this year. The way above average rain has made it difficult to stay ahead of the weeds and grass. May and June were both way above normal for moisture. July settled down for a time then came August. We topped off at six inches above normal when the month was over. I just can't wait to see what September brings. I have a jungle for a lawn and garden and it's down to the point if it isn't raining, put on the mud boots and start weeding and mowing even if it's wet. I don't like to cut grass wet but I'm desperate. It will take two passes to get it under control again. The first pass with the mower will be set as high as it can go and the second will be set at normal height. The end product will be lots of good chemical free nitrogen rich mulch for the garden. Yea!!

    Have a great day in the garden.

  7. A nice hint of how to set up a beautiful and practical garden. I wish you a nice day.

  8. I always enjoy seeing what you are up to in your garden! :-)

  9. Good morning !!
    From the morning with tea strolling through your garden again. I really like it...

  10. That forest looks like a great place to hide if you were a kid. :o) It's amazing how green your garden is considering your drought. Here's hoping to a very moist winter!

  11. The alley sure has changed a lot since I last saw it. Seems like late summer is settling in on us.
