July Garden Update

It feels like that time again, and I really wanted to show how much my crazy garden has grown.
Mistakes, I’ve made a few... like planting all my veg in too close, not giving my mutant pumpkins enough room to “spread”, underestimating the power of a few small pansies which now threaten to take over. That flower to the left? Aubergine.
Last year I planted a Eucolyptus “shrubbery” and we all watched in amazement as it began reaching for the stars.... I somehow neglected to read the tag that says clearly if I do not prune often, it could become a tree, 20 odd foot high! Whoops. So this morning, a year and a half late, I gave it a good chop job. I also took the opportunity to get some progress photos. Click the “read more” link to see em...

Clemantis corner is starting to scale the fence... maybe she’ll get there next year. :(
