A Look Around

I'm embarrassed to show off my garden this year. The heatwave really did a number on my tomato plants. Hard to believe, but I didn't get a single tomato this year. I've had plenty of blooms but they never developed.
Here's another sorry bell pepper plants. I've only gotten a couple of peppers this year but they were inedible. I can always count on basil, though. Next year, I'm skipping the peppers and planting nothing but basil in this bed.
Look at this poor hydrangea! I have 3 of them and they all look like this! It's starting to put on some new growth since the heatwave and drought broke but most of their existing leaves died.
The muscadines continued to grow, though, and are starting to ripen.
And here's another plant that has continued to grow...vincas (periwinkles). I love this plant because it's almost impossible for me to destroy. It's almost impossible for a border collie mix to destroy, too. She dug out the flowers a few weeks ago and I had to replant them and they're as good as new.

  1. Vincas are my favorites. What's your plans for the muscadines? My Grandma used to make jelly and it was so good.

  2. your garden pretty much looks like mine. i got about 10 or so cherry tomatoes and a couple of banana peppers. sad sad sad. i'm thinking next year i may skip gardening and focus more on enjoying the pool. LOL
