Garden- wise, beyond peppers and watermelon, everything is pretty much had it. I know this is a repeat of every week but this simmer has been brutal for us gardeners (another repeat.) As I mentioned in the previous post, we took a small trip to the mountains and I just reviewed the garden when we got back Sunday. I also caught up my spreadsheet, here.
As I said I did a quick tour Sunday evening.
Hope you can see four watermelon. That's whats there.
Hot peppers and banana peppers seem to love this weather. My bell peppers all have bad areas on them.
Marigolds. I have touched on them previously. I have done nothing to these. Maybe that's what I have to do with everything.
Overall. Pretty sad. Got my work cut out for me next weekend.
Our vacation wasn't a full week but a nice break from everything that seems to go in our daily lives. We are always busy with something. My oldest said such as much until he bought his house. Now I think he understands. Anyway we had a nice time and in looking at the pictures I see a few more upcoming posts so stay tuned. I will leave a few here.
The house we stayed at had hummingbird feeders and I counted 10-12 at one time, fighting each other to eat. And boy do they eat. And very territorial. Actually kinda mean.
Biltmore. About 179,000 square foot. You want to clean it?
70'-0" tall banquet room with organ. Note the carvings on the balcony. Everything in this home is hand- carved. Everything.
Atrium. Now that's a greenhouse.
Part of the gardens. There's 30 acres of them. Needless to say this was at the end of our day at Biltmore and we were tired of walking.
View from the top of Craggy Gardens in black and white. Sometimes I like to see black and white photos as I think they lend a different perspective.
I took this from the deck of the house Sunday morning before leaving for home. We stayed in Little Switzerland. Notice the fog in the valleys. Yes, we hit a little of that heading home.
That's it for now but as I said I have some great information for posts. Stay tuned.
