The garden doesn't look too bad, but I'm afraid there is something or several somethings attacking a couple of the plants. Specifically the zucchini is covered with those annoying little white bugs as well as dozens of flies. We've been spraying incecticidal soap for a couple weeks, but it may have already been too late. I can't figure out where all the damn flies are coming from, though. That's very annoying.
The tomato plants are finally starting to produce some tiny green tomatoes:
The zucchini plants appear to be okay, but as I said, they're covered with bugs and some of the leaves have brown patches on them. I have no idea what's going on with them.
The yellow crookneck squash plant is still going strong, but we've sprayed it, too, since it's so close to the diseased zucchini.
I feel bad for the Japanese eggplant, though, because the squash plant is totally crowding it out. The one little eggplant I could see looked good, however.
The bell peppers look fantastic! Beautiful green colour, lots of buds and blossoms, and even a couple peppers:
And, finally here are the cucumber plants. I couldn't find any cucumbers, though. The vegetation is so dence, I couldn't get down inside to look around. It's one of the best looking plants in the garden, though.
Elsewhere in the garden, the lavender is absolutely beautiful, but it's also covered with dozens of buzzing bees, so it was hard to get very many pictures:
Mom and I planted these brightly coloured flowers last year (or was it the year before? I can't remember!), and they came back this year:
The echinacia is blooming as well:
And so is this plant, which I can't remember the name of anymore:
And, in the front, my Midas Touch rose has simply exploded with blossoms and buds! I bought some decorative bark to surround it and help keep more water around the plant rather than running down the hill.
Next week mom and I are going to spend a lot of time working on the yard. It's a three-day weekend, so we'll have plenty of time to get our work done, and still rest and relax! Who knows, I might even grill something. Ha. Maybe not.
