We had some monster storms Monday night that left me with a very bad headache yesterday. Every time it rains I've been getting them lately. Ugh. The only thing I did yesterday between naps was to wander out into the muggy mess and look at the cart garden.
We were worried about the cukes getting pollinated but I could hear the buzzing bees before I even got close. I've got plenty of cute little baby cukes thanks to their efforts.
The tomato vines are full. They seemed to have stopped growing taller which is fine by me. There are more than enough tomatoes on the vine if we are lucky enough to have them all ripen.
My eagle eyed DIL spotted a berry bush in the yard down by the creek when she was here last week. I do recall the banks of the creeks having berry bushes when we first moved in but I'd forgotten all about them. I'll have to do some homework to figure out just what they are.
The kale and the chard have not fared so well. I had to move them up onto the deck after some nasty bug decided to snack on them. They don't get as much sun up there but I can keep a better eye on them. We've had three meals from them so far so if that's all there is it hasn't been a total loss.
Speaking of snacks, the Hostas are in all their glory-what's left of them. The deer have eaten most of them all the way to the ground this year. The Mister was doing a regular hat dance out in the yard over it. Last year they killed all of the ones we had on the far side of the yard. We'll have to figure out a deterrent for next year or we might not have any left.
