Weekly Garden Report - Vol 4

I have a whole lotta pictures that I've been planning to post, but it's been a busy week and I just didn't get to it. I'm still trying to get ready to leave for Halifax first thing tomorrow morning so this will be an abbreviated garden report.

Last Friday I discovered:
The deer found my new shrub - guess it was bound to happen.


And one of my tomoato plants had fallen over.


From Tuesday:
I had tied up my tomato plant and it seems to be holding.


I thought my tomato plants had started off really well this year, but I think the lack of sun has been hard on them. They don't look nearly as big and bushy as my tomato plants were last year.


Lettuce and garlic are still looking good though.


And these are just pretty:





And with that, we're off to Nova Scotia for the weekend!

Have a great weekend!

And when you get back, please tell me: did you grow your tomato plants from seeds or plant them as starts?

I've got Gardener's Envy. (Or Gardener's Chagrin, the symptoms are identical.) The tomato plants that I grew from seed are teeeensy tiny little things. while the one tomato plant that I bought as a start is looking more like yours. Not sure if the fault is in my seeds or in myself.

Hope you had a great time in NS! Your garden looks delightful. My tomato aren't so great this year, either. Some years are like that, I guess.

I love this post, I wish I had a garden!! I was able to use some of my sister inlaws garden lettuce though and it rocks!

Such pretty garden pics! Looks like you definitely have a green thumb. Hope you had a great weekend away.

Just found your blog. Your garden looks great, and I think everyone is having a bad tomato year. I know we are. Do they just grow cats prettier in Canada? My sister-in-law lives in Edmonton and has two of the prettiest cats--much like yours.
