~A Walk Through The Garden~

Olive O loves to wander through the garden. She'll stop every now and then and smell the flowers and has the best time. If only we could get her to chase the bunny that has been eating my newly planted flowers. She thinks its her playmate and wags her tail when she sees it instead of chasing it.

My garden is the prettiest it has ever been this year. I think it's probably from the amount of rain we've had, plus all the manure and feather meal I put down this spring. We had our soil tested last fall, and everything came back fine, except for the nitrogen levels, which the feather meal has helped.

Here's some recent shots of what's blooming.

I hope you all had a nice 4th of July weekend. We spent the 4th at the Farmers Market. The crowd was down which was understandable but it was still fun.
Our Tomatoes are finally starting to come in. We've been picking beans for the past week or so, and the peppers should start turning soon. Hope to get some produce pictures soon.

Till next time -
Happy Gardening,
