July in the Backyard

July 7, 2010

I haven’t been much of a gardener this year.  The baddogs make it very difficult to grow things to “ready to pick” stage.  However, I have hanging tomatoes — they are very green, but I have hopes that they will ripen by the end of September.  The peaches are grand this year.  They aren’t big, but this tree gives me lots of sweet small peaches.  Vicki noted that orange is the color for hot weather — no doubt!  The trumpet vine echoes that sentiment.
