The garden on July 23, 2010

And after a two week break, back for a visit — most of my fellow gardening crew were either away on their own vacations or in town but busy with family visits so it was all up to me this time. We’ve had some cool mornings but warm afternoons — a nice balance! — but it did mean some needed watering. Didn’t have a chance to do some proper cleanup and trimming but there were a slew of tomatoes to take, so I’ll make a cold soup of some sort, I figure!

But first, the latest video:

Next, a selection from the rolling photo set of some of the photos from today — and I’d like to feature what’s become one of the hits, the shisho, also known as perilla. After a slow start it’s completely exploded — took a number of leaves and am going to see what I can do with them over the weekend, as apparently they are best used when fresh.

Shisho!

Some other photos here — good growing days all around:
Roses
Molokhiya
Tomatoes
Marigolds!

    Lovely, Ned. You’ve inspired me to do the same. I shall post some pix later.
