July Garden Tour

 July has come and gone.  

In one way, 2020 is slowly moving along, corona virus, could please go away, you have been here long enough. 

In another way it is zipping along, harvesting cucumber, tomatoes, green beans, peppers and making flower bouquets and all the while I am starting to notice late summer is arriving here in Wisconsin.

When I am in my garden the season goes so quickly.

Here we go, let us take a July garden tour.


Hot July brings picnic joys, firecrackers for girls and boys.

In the garden, July brings garden goodness.

A soon to be white pumpkin is growing big and round.


 

Nasturtiums.. yum.. yum.

 

 

Some of my succulents.

 

A stroll among the flowers.



 

Our gladiolus are now, starting to bloom.


 

Hops

I add hops to my bouquets, they are fun to share with people.

They are fun to touch and bring out conversation.

That is one thing I miss during this time of corona, is taking my bouquets to nursing homes and to Daybreak. The power flower bouquets have on people is incredible, especially memory.

 

Below is a photo of our tomato and pepper patch.  

I can not believe the change a few weeks can do, we have red tomatoes and peppers today.

 


 

The onion patch.

 I harvested the onions yesterday. 

I  will share more in a future blog post about our onion harvest.

 


 

I decided to do a Red, White and Blue theme on our front deck, in honor of all that our troops are doing for our nation this year regarding the virus and more.

 I am so pleased with the way the petunias filled out and did just as I wanted them to do. 

 

 

And a little stroll around the back of the garden.

 



Thank you for strolling along with me in my July garden.


In August swallows southward fly, summers waning, fall is nigh.

  7. Your back yard looks like an enchanted forest! So much variety, and so many spring onions. They can be hard to find in the stores at times. What are the tall skinny purple flowers? I believe a blogger recently posted them and asked what they are.

  13. Fabulous! I don't think I've ever really seen your garden before. It's very large and lush...so much to see. Of course, I just love that darling bunny peeking out from among your succulents. I mean every garden needs a bunny...and one that doesn't eat the crop is even better! ;) xo

  14. Wow! I didn't realize how huge your garden is. It's hard to tell. . .do you live in the country? By the size of your garden I would think so, but then it looks like maybe you have a city lot. Anyway, wherever you live it's wonderful! Hugs.

  16. Beautiful! I agree with you, this year is just creeping along in many ways, yet it seems like it will be gone before we know it.
    I love how your petunias turned out! Perfect!

  17. Just beautiful! Some needed inspiration to get outside and work on establishing a garden at our new place (the pigs are currently tilling and fertilizing it for me, a section at a time, and as I empty boxes those are turning into mulch to kill the grass and creeping charley!) So much to do - but it should make things much easier next spring! In the meantime, I need to get my herbs and garlic in the ground to get established before frost . . .
