Trying To Beat The Heat

It has been unbearably hot and humid here in the Ohio Valley.  But I still have lots of new bloomers.

The only hosta flower left in the yard.

Mark's Oakleaf hydrangea

Hydrangea at the corner of the driveway.

Seeing Red

 Finally, my little cherry tomatoes are turning red.

And check out little veggie man.

I tried cutting a watermelon a different way today.  I think I will always cut it like this from now on.

New Members To The Backard

Naked Ladies or as my friend Betsy calls them, Surprise lilies.

One of Mark's ligularias.  

August Is Starting Out Gangbusters

Came back from Utah and found these beauties!

Finally some beans

Mrk loves beets.  We have been getting them in our CSA box from Cedarmore Farm CSA and he decided I needed to can some beet salad.  So I did.  Eight pints and one almost full quart THAT WE ARE ALREADY EATING.  Not too bad either.
