... and here it is now! Ahhh! Crowded is an understatement. Russian Sage is out of control and I decided not to pinch my mums back so they're blooming already.
I planted the Russian Sage on the left in late spring and each plant was about 2" high. I had no idea they would grow so fast! I need to move them, but there are so many bees on them.
And in the backyard ... Our tiny little veggie garden patch was thriving, but I have officially abandoned it. Why? Read on ... This picture was actually taken a month ago and it is fuller now. Tomatoes are over 6' tall!
A couple of weeks ago, I made a delicious homemade pizza and a salad and used a ton of homegrown tomatoes. So good! Unfortunately, the next day I realized I'd been bitten by chiggers while picking tomatoes. I'll spare you the details, but it wasn't pretty. I thought I had chicken pox again! Veggie garden still has plenty of tomatoes, but I'm afraid to go near it. I'm actually looking forward to cold weather so I can tear it all out.
