It’s been a busy summer for me this year, filled with travel, work and gardening.
Before I headed out to Germany to visit my daughter, I planted my veggie garden.
I am taking care of my son’s dog, Tex, and as he is a big cow looking kind of guy (a black lab), I put up a 4 foot chicken wire fence to keep him from digging and rooting through my garden. It’s been a bit of a challenge to crawl over and get into it, as I didn’t make a temporary gate, but it’s worked out very well.
I’ve even tried rooting ginger and it’s been a great success.
It’s now grown another sprout, besides the one shown here.
And I’ve rooted an avocado seed. It’s all been a discovery in gardening for me.
The garden has grown faster than I can keep up with, it seems. We’ve had more than our fair share of rain here in the Midwest. In fact, we had a deluge in early summer, but the rains have tapered off and we now have a normal August ahead of us.
