Looking good Muriel, happy for you, thanks for the pics of something to drool over.  Hope it doesn't take me too long to get this place into good condition as we are probably going to have an other dry year next year too. Great how you figured out how to overcome.

If I can find a memory card holder to put into laptop to transfer photos to laptop,I will start sharing. While staying at friends home on west coast he and his wife showed me how to use my digital camera.

Muriel, could be heading to water restrictions where I live. South Saskatchewan River that flows through is shrinking. I guess one good thing , City works can clean the bottom of river of tossed bicycles  etc.

Did a shorter lawn cut to rid of morning glory.

Darn ground wasps are determined to stay no matter how much I spray.

Almost all veggies planted over week ago have come up. If a row does not come up I will replant with another quick rising veggie.

Another hot day, not as bad. Got to remember my water intake from bottled water. The dispenser size.

William, your garden looks so neat and inviting.  Love the trellis.

Nice harvest, Don.

For melon mounds we punched holes in a soup can and buried it.  We directed drippers  that run for 30 seconds twice a day into the cans and planted the melons and cukes right up against them.  The mound stays dry and relatively weed free and the roots go down to seek the water. I picked about 125 lbs. of cukes and squash in one day.  Shared with the food bank.

Finally got my garden where I want it.  With the drought here in CA we have mandatory water reduction of 25% over last year or face huge fines.  We have put micro irrigation on everything and have reduced usage by 52%.  No water on the path means better weed control and fewer pests.  The plants are loving it!

William sorry so hot for you, it cooled to 80s and 90s here. Been to busy to get any of my gardening done. Need to go out to see if my zuc plants came up they weren't yesterday.

My veggies are finally coming up, row by row. Late to harvest but that is alright. Just have to watch that rabbit does not get them first.

Well here I am again inside for it's to hot right now with heat index of 110 degrees. Went down to greenhouse to water a few wild flowers I dug up a while back and low and behold I had all my zuc plants finally pop up so I might have some after all if the bugs don't get them. My green beans are gone I need to pull them out to make room for other plants may be cabbage. I got a trailer load and truck load of horse manure to put in a new bed for asparagus. I have all kinds of cantaloupe melons growing, huge ones. Toms coming in and had to throw 4 away because of bottom rot. Got all different kinds of hot peppers on and white  bells on.

First sun flower I ever grew.
