And Queen Anne's Lace
It makes me nuts that the rain here makes my tall plants lay down, next year I have to stake everything up using chicken wire and posts, I will put the wire horizontal to the plants and they grow up through it. I also plan to buy metal cattle panels to stand beside my sunflowers and tie them to it and keep the fox scent in the garden to keep them critters out. The squirrels are RUINING my tomatos and my sunflowers- the little .... varmints (insert VERY mad face here) You see, bugs I can deal with because I have experience with those,(Spray spray spray) but the rain laying my plants over and the squirrels are 2 new things I have to learn to battle. ARGH!
Kay finished the wall around my herbs and it turned out pretty nice! This fall we will be adding dirt, compost etc to the right side of the inside of the bed in the photo to bring the ground level even. We will start on the raised beds this fall after school starts Aug 23rd. It isnt round its acutally octagon shaped and its beautiful and larger in real life than it looks here! The very tall plants on the left are Amaranth.
