My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

WILTED GARDEN

Trying so hard to keep up with the garden, but it's soooo hot that I just don't want to go outside except to feed and water the critters (chickens and goats). 

Have harvested a few tomatoes and some blueberries. Nothing else so far (unless you count the weeds that I pull and feed to the goats). Summer squash are finally taking off. With only another month in the growing season, not sure how much we'll get before the first freeze.

How is everyone else's garden doing this year ... what with this crazy mixed up weather and massive heat wave?

It has not been good. Tomatos are flowering but not bearing fruit due to the heat. Only thing rocking is banana peppers.
