My garden looks pathetic right now. I have okra, one eggplant (but lots of buds), some pumpkin vines coming out, basil, rosemary, and a couple of carrots (holdovers from the spring). The hot weather hasn't helped, though I have been watering every day.
This watermelon split. I managed to rescue it before the bugs got to it. It's sweet and juicy. I have two other watermelons that seem to be doing fine. I just have to keep watering!
My rose bushes look terrible. I hope the winter helps them. I'll have to do some serious pruning in February.
I love gardening, but not when Mother Nature doesn't provide the necessary moisture! I hope next summer is better to my gardens. I plan to enrich the soil before I plant my winter crops! And I'll water all winter if I need to!
