Garden Week 12

I'm waaay late on last week's garden update. I've been swamped with photo things & paint things. We've had some wild weather around here & one corner of our shade broke, but I was able to fix it. The plants all look like they are doing really well on the cages.

The watermelons are still getting bigger.

We enjoyed some of our cucumbers. We harvest 2 more for a total of 5 cucumbers so far from our garden.

I don't think the new cilantro are going to make it. I'm about to give up on the whole potted garden idea.

We've got tons of other cucumbers coming in, and they are neat to watch change from flower to pepper looking to a final huge cucumber.

Huge like this one!

We also started getting some flowers on the tomato plants, so they might be bearing fruit soon too.

This is on another row of tomatoes. We've got 3 rows, with 5 plants each.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We bought tickets to the soccer game in 2 weeks.

For a basic topiary design to add to your formal garden, try using techniques to coax smooth curves in your hedges, helping the shape of your garden to flow. Or, if you still have something that's got a lot of right angles and corners, start growing shapes at the corners to add decoration; think of the ornaments you see at the corners on fancy staircases and molding in structural Garden design.
By incorporating topiary into your formal garden design, you can take basic lines and create art, all adding up to a good-looking, green space in your home.
