No Clever Title

August 12, 2013

Because this post has no point really.

Actually it has two points, both photo based.

Point 1:

There was a rainbow this evening that, as you can see, I managed to capture it reasonably well for a change. Yay.

Point 2:

I mentioned in one or more previous posts that the vines have filled in just about every inch between beds in the back and then some. While I was out taking rainbow pictures I couldn’t help but notice (from my vantage point perched on a concrete bench) that this garden is now officially in the category of “ridiculous”.

Both of these are clickable for a zoom in if you wish. (The bottom one is stitched together from 3 photos and obviously I flinched from the thunder clap that broke my trance, making for a distorted perspective.)




I bet I don’t remember this next year when I “plan” (hahahaha: “plan”….right, I know….) my 2014 summer garden.

    Your Asparagus is more ‘Upright’ than mine. We get lots of wind up here. A monthly time lapse would be wicked cool… Just sayin

      I corralled mine the first year with some posts and paracord. Since then it is more dense and pretty much upright.
      Time lapse would take planning. Planning r not us.

    Bruce, if you are like me, you may be like a Chameleon on a checkerboard when the harvest overwhelms. Do you have a book with “Garden Overflow” recipes? Right now I am struggling to use up green and yellow beans, and Magda Squash. I also have about 200 onions of various types, thankfully they are sitting in the ground and I can delay that until at least late October. Or do you just walk out, pick a few things and ‘wing it’ in the kitchen? That looks like an incredible amount of food for two people. Unless you have a few neighbors that help. Oh, and I running out of space to hang garlic in the wood shed. Alas, it is a long winter . That rainbow shot is quite serene

      I do become a slave to it in some times. Tomatoes get dried,soup’d salsa’d and sauced. Beans get frozen. Peppers get frozen or dried or turned into frozen poppers. Extra berries become jam or frozen. basil becomes barter @ local restaurant or pesto.
      Lots of overrun gets given away to select neighbors and friends
      and a lot gets eaten every week of the year.

    The garden is amazing. No one can accuse you of doing anything half way.

      Thanks. Tornado damage is also described as amazing sometimes too. πŸ™‚
