For how busy we have been this summer, and how much neglect our backyard is doing, the gardens are awesome! This is our view from the sideyard:
The flowers that we planted are all growing in nicely. And the rudbeckias are awesome.
The petunias are overflowing onto the path - just like I wanted!
Our pots are massive - taller than our 4 year old!
The holly hocks are about to take off:
Our veggie garden is setting records for this year:
Our squash has never been so massive and tall.
We have already enjoyed zucchinis, cilantro, basil, and peas.
Our green beans are over 6 feet tall and the tomatoes are massive bushes.
One of my favorite things in summer is to send the kids outside after dinner. The weather has cooled down and our backyard is turning out to be a beautiful place to be.
