Neglected Garden-Part Two

So, I did say that the garden was being neglected, right? Here is the overall view of our vegetable garden, complete with sunflowers planted by the birds. It looks really green, but most of the green is weeds.

Here are some of the many weeds surrounding the corn.
Impressive, I know.

I am afraid to enter the garden without wearing tall garden boots! As if I wasn't afraid of this jungle before, now we have some wasps on the side of our garden that like to buzz out of nowhere and get you! If you were lucky enough to hang out with me in person, I could complain and complain and complain about my current stings... Not everyone can be so lucky!

But, here's to show that even in a neglected garden complete with stingers, there is plenty of good stuff coming.

The kale is still looking good.

Here are of our Easter Egg radishes. I let them grow and grow and grow, because they are said to help keep cucumber beetles away. Now I have hundreds of the cucumber beetles rather than thousands of them...

 And lastly, some flowers from our garden & from Mother Nature.

Hope you are getting good stuff from a garden somewhere this summer!

    That white barn is a gem.
