the garden in August

We’ve seen some strong growth in our garden as the summer has gone on, owing lately to a lot of consistent watering I think as a rainy spring and early summer in Northeast Ohio has given way to a fairly arid summer–to the extent that rain comes through, it’s usually part of long fingers of storm clouds that pass by eastward and release only about twenty minutes of precipitation on the area.
We’ve seen both tomato plants grow some fruit, the rose plant seems to have made the move outdoors well, and the flower plants in the front are thriving. We’re still waiting to see what the pumpkin and gourd plants will produce but they’ve certainly grown lots of leaves and vines. In addition, a few types of annual and perennial flowers have been planted in the late summer.
