More Gardening

Since I’m not ready to show you my latest patchwork projects yet, can I show you more garden photos?  I have been neglecting our yard and gardens lately because, like some others, I am getting over the whole gardening marathon.

messy veggie gardenI have been especially neglecting my vegetable garden, as you can see from the messiness. I only have two tomato plants in there, and I put cages around them, but they got so top-heavy and I never took the time to string them up more. So now they are sort of crushing the jalapeno and bell peppers. Oh well.
