How does your garden grow?

Peaches !Over run with 'em..why must they all ripen at once?

Belle always helps water the plants...

This hummingbird vine is taking over the porch again..Bob will be fussing about it climbing the roof!

My new gazing ball..Bob was working with the tractor taking away weeds, and he hit the old one with the bucket. The ball shattered and I'm still finding slices!

Another peachy picture..

Love these purple/bluish balloon flowers..amid the cone flowers and the pink bee balm clouds..

The wee horses are wishing for a treat..not getting these apples!

My tiny hay bale garden...2 cucumbers,2tomato's a zucchini and a summer squash..I had to do it, even though I don't have the time this year a few plants are a must.

The roses are doing pretty well since the move from the front of the house..Coneflowers ! So sunny and cheerful..

Thats a quick tour of the front yard and the hay bale garden, oh and some of the fruit trees..

My gardens grow very well, how 'bout yours?

My peach tree's output this year was dreadful. Only a few fit to eat. The last of the squash plants died a few days ago. But more tomatoes are coming in than we can eat. (Come help yourself!)

A great post. I envy your peaches.

Our peaches, small as usual, never made it to full ripeness. The groundhogs eat all reachable from the stout branches, the squirrels eat all they can reach beyond that, the dear eat around the edge and eat all hanging below six feet up. A total wipeout!

Ooh, do you still have some peaches? What can I give you? Tomatoes? Peppers? Want to trade some?

Is the hay bale garden like a raised bed? Looks really nice.
