Garden Report - July

If you forget about the dirt, the bugs, and the blazing sun, gardening's a lot of fun. You've probably already guessed that I'm not exactly Nature Girl. I'm not crazy about dirt, am scared witless by bugs, and don't believe in sweat which doesn't make me a great candidate for Gardener of the Year.

Want to know the Topsy Turvy target customer? You're reading her right now. This whole container gardening thing is pure genius and so far it's going pretty well.

Because there's (gardening) life beyond Topsy Turvy, here's a brief report.

1. Orange and yellow marigolds for no other reason than they're beautiful.



2. Crookneck squash, taken a few days ago. It's awash in big yellow flowers today.


3. Globe basil running amok.


4. Green peppers!


5. A tiny salsa pepper


6. Plum tomatoes, taken a few days ago. The tomato is now a deep red and the one next to it is catching up fast. Even better, two new tomatoes popped up.


7. English cucumbers plus very busy ant


8. Three defectors in search of freedom. They leaped off one of the plants and tried to make a run for it but I was too fast for them.

9. Zucchini? I can't remember.


We now have an adorable Japanese eggplant forming and, to my amazement and delight, a few ripening Topsy Turvys.

I should have done a container garden this year. Instead I let my husband clear a part of our yard and plant some things. He immediately forgot about planting the rest of them and they died. *sigh* Everything looks fabulous!
