Annabelle Lee - hiding out in the garden this morning, hoping the squirrels will think she has gone inside... she is ever the optimist.
My spring vegetable garden is now mostly fallow - the potatoes are all dug up (and eaten), the peas and leafy greens long gone. There is still some garlic, a few shallots. I have a few tomato plants hanging in their - Sungold, and a few others (I mostly went for plants with the most resistance to anything - and for the first time, I'm getting a few tomatoes, and about five plants are still looking good. There are peppers and eggplants too - and sweet potatoes, taking over when no one is looking.
I meant to plant green beans. And okra. A few rows of zinnias and sunflowers. It isn't too late - it is the south.
The hummingbirds have shown up. Lots of them. Dragonflies are everywhere. Butterflies here and there - I'm seeing more each day.
The rain has been good.
