We have had quite a few very hot days and lucky the garden is still coping with the heat, although the grass is looking very sad.
My large apple tree that covers the chook run has lovely apples, I usually stew these as they are quite tart.
Pumpkins and zucchini running wild.
Bees busy in the pumpkin flowers
Pumpkins forming, I have no idea what sort they are.
Tiny toms ripening.
Ive finally done something in the garden, I try to avoid doing anything in this heat.
I got to prune my loganberry bush and tie up the new runners
These are the old canes ready for the compost
A little greenery on the lawn which I pick for the bunnies
Blackberries coming along
This lambs ear survives anywhere, I know its like a bit of a weed but I love it as it reminds me of my Mothers garden as a child
Roses seem to like the heat.
Bay tree loves it too
So does the rosemary
The grapes seem to thrive
Little while longer to ripen
Some more tomatoes
Spaghetti squash, hmm Im not sure what they are meant to look like when ripe as I have never grown them, Im eager to taste them, I hope they are nice as I have a few.
Four blueberry bushes and only 2 or 3 blueberries a day, its their first year so hopefully they will be more established next year.
Hollyhocks although untidy are magnificent flowers I love them
The girls are all doing fine in the heat, they have been a little slack on the laying side of things though
Worm farm still moist and doing ok, its so easy to forget about it.
