I love garlic too, I find the hard neck garlic easier to grow than the softneck. Right now onions and garlic are in the hayloft drying.

Amazing the differences in the hardiness zones, My iris are done and dead and cut back by about 2 months, I do love the iris.

I got my first tomato today!

WhooHoo...Thank you for the clouds Taffy!
They are here and so far I've gotten a 5 minute sprinkle. Granted not enough to even dampen the surface, but my fingers are crossed this next batch of clouds dumps some real rain.

No rain here. :) Although I just heard thunder...so, could it be? The 4th has me a bit nervous, it makes no difference if fireworks are banned, people still set them off. It is so dry that one spark could easily torch something off - and there would go my potato patch :).

Still raining and I'm doing the happy jig!!
I'll keep poking them to coax 'em into dropping the goods.

Missy, I was really sweating tomorrow to the point of boarding my horse somewhere else for a week.
My neighbors usually have a huge party with fireworks so big (illegal of course) it puts the town's display to shame.
Fortuntely (um, I mean UNfortunately) my neighbor lost his job and can't afford $2000 of fireworks this year.

Uh huh, boo hoo I'm crying a river about that.
I'm just glad I don't have to worry about my place going up like a box of matches or paying the vet to sew someone back together after being terrorized by their fireworks and breaking the fence or barn wall.

When the clouds are done here I'll send them your way with a mission.

I have been getting cukes and squash daily, my mators are starting to come off the bush finally and I have five beautiful black eggplants almost ready. Really late for my area, but as long as they produced I'm happy!!

Psh! Sky, don't give up on New Zealand weather yet. You can grow plenty of things in New Zealand. You'll have to come down here to the Botanic Gardens in ChCh and learn a thing or two. Though Wellington does sound a bit dud with all that wind. We don't get that much wind here in Christchurch, just some rain which is nice.

I'm so jealous of everyone's pretty gardens. D: I love gardening and anything garden related. I plan to have so many beautiful gardens when I get my own place I'm not even sure I'll have room for horses. Of course I studied all about gardening back home and then moved to NZ and now need to relearn everything.

This spring I want to plant some Canna lilies. Especially the Tropicanna variety. When we get our own place my fiance wants a rose garden and I would love to do at least a few acres of native planting to attract some native birds. I would also love an indoor atrium, and of course a fruit orchard and raised vegetable garden.

That's just the beginning of my plans though. >> It may never happen, but hey, dreams are free right?

You must be somewhere near me. We got dumped on too plus and some of the worst hail I've ever seen.
The garden got pretty beat up/damaged and I had to pick a lot of things I wasn't ready for.

Now, we are melting in the heat wave...
I've not seen such droopy and unhappy veggies. Even the flowers are acting wonky. My Hibiscus and Rose of Sharons are blooming like it is August and the rest of the flowers are complaining.

How did your garden fare?
