Community Garden shots and Beyond

Standard

During the dry spell, I also took photos of the state of the Community Garden and our North beds.

Entry, south side.

Path, overgrown, but still there.  These next pictures are examples of what’s going on in the community garden as of two weeks ago, give or take a few days.  These examples show the effects of the heat and the lack of water.

Our neighbor Cliff planted Zinnias amongst his tomatoes, they were beautiful.  Even in this “on the way out” thing they had going on.

These next pictures are of the North beds.

Arkansas Travelers.

Weepy Okra.

Overgrown, dead, raspberries.

A look back, like a week and a half…

Standard

I have mentioned before that it was really DRY here.  It didn’t rain for six weeks.  Due to this lack of rain, a lot of things died.  Those that did not die, suffered.  Here are a few photos.

Pathway through some peach trees to my house, dry grass.

Victory garden, the Japanese Maple Paul planted wilted and turned brown.  The tree is still alive, it just got heat stroke I guess.

View of Victory Garden from the deck.

The grass in front of my house.  I just couldn’t believe it.  It died.  But it has been raining, so now it’s green.

More views of Victory garden.

Suffering.

Herbs that died.  I believe this to be my oregano.
