My hanging baskets beginning to fill out. I love the plastic pots so much better than the coconut baskets that dried out too quickly.
Pepper plants growing peppers sitting in 4-inch pots waiting to go in Olivia's greenhouse. Talk about failing at gardening this summer.
Sunday was a dirt hauling day. Still trying to fill the huge hole to put up a shop and have storage space so I can have a big lawn.
Emily helped smooth the dirt behind the new retaining wall. Big deal as manual outside labor is not her thing.
She helps when I ask, but doesn't enjoy working outside. She's an indoor girl.
I let her drive my truck on the side roads and she loved it. Not too much longer and she can get her permit, but I doubt I'll be teaching her to drive this winter. Our roads are too dangerous.
I didn't get to burn the grass this year. We went from winter to fire ban in a couple of days. The lawn spent along time looking like this and is finally just now green. It's been 80's to 90F all summer long (for the most part) and I think I really underestimated how much you have to water in temperatures like that. It's not something I'm used to. A lot of my plants were stunted and I don't have a lot of flowers this year.
Lucas and Homer playing some game shooting Nerf bullets at each other.
I love garden gnomes which happen to be insanely expensive here. Someday I hope to have a big collection I can leave to my Gardener Olivia.
