Dog days of summer for sure at Garden on Sherlock Street.
It's hot. We have had some rains which is why the scene in my first photo is possible. I spend most of my garden time filling buckets from the rain barrels to water the vegetable garden and the containers.
Picking tomatoes and patty pan squash. Oddly, I have no zucchini. The plants look good, but they haven't made any thing yet. Watching some cantaloupe grow and hoping the peppers pick up the pace soon.
The below plant combination has become my favorite this year. A purple leafed sweet potato vine with some hot pink vincas.
