a garden update

August 14 2013 008

the days of being outside and enjoying the backyard have been and will continue to be on hold for a while

it is hot

really hot and buggy

mosquitoes. hate those little bastards

the only time i spend any real time outside is when i have to water the yard

because also, we have not had any good rain in quite some time

and so, everything is a bit overgrown

this corner of potted plants must get some good shade during the day because everything is growing at a fast rate especially the gardenia bush

there isn’t much going on in the veggie garden other than sweet potato vines (which are taking over. you see the gnome in the first picture?) and the pineapples which are rocking
