I came to the conclusion on Friday that when your weeds are as tall as your vegetable plants, it's time to drop everything else and get to it pronto.  So, on Sunday morning that's exactly what I did.  For 3 hours.  It's looking 10 times better.....for the moment.

We are still harvesting asparagus and the veggies coming up next are sugar snap peas, summer squash, cukes and tomatoes.  My pepper plants are, in a word, pathetic.  I'm not sure what's up with them but I'm hoping they sprout up soon.  They have peppers and flowers but the plants only stand about 10 inches tall.

We spent Saturday morning at the farmer's market.  The remainder of the weekend was spent catching up the laundry, getting the lawn mowed, cleaning, of course weeding.  This month may be a bit quieter on the blog than previous months.  It's a month of changes, juggling and finding balance.  Ahhh....balance.  :-)

I made BLT's on Saturday for lunch.  They were good but I just can't wait until they are made with our own vine-ripened tomatoes.  Hopefully only a few more weeks.

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend!

LOL. Those weeds grow better than anything else at times!

Your veggies look scrumptious. So envious of your snap peas. I know what I am missing!

Hope your week leaves you feeling fulfilled. Take good care.

Staci, we are in the middle of winter here in Australia and have been having frosts each morning lately and I am nursing along my cherry tomatoes and trying to protect them from the frost. Even if I get a couple a day I am happy and then don't have to buy the hard rocks in the supermarket.

Your veggies look at lot like mine but you take much better photos. I know what you mean about the weeds. All the rain has been a blessing but it does not come without cost. Usually to ones back.

I love that photo of Wilma and Daisy. I am envious that you are still harvesting asparagus and looking for sugar snaps - much too hot here for them. Lovely photos of you place as always. xo

The boy's picture is an aww moment!
i am a first time gardener. I have had 4 zucchini and two yellow squash and no cucumbers. The bees seem to be doing their job. I have male and female flowers, but most are just wilting. Any advice would be great!

Thanks All! Nanna Chel - how wonderful that you still have cherry tomatoes!! They are so very delicious and worth the extra effort. :)

Sophie - are your flowers wilting or are the leaves wilting? Feel free to email me and I can try and help you diagnose it - JayNStaci@aol.com

Wilma + Daisy look so happy in the summer sun :) I love that they are just lounging... too cute! And your garden looks wonderful! I'm so impressed with your squash. I had some blooms + hopeful starts, but they've all withered away... so not much hope for summer squash this year.

And it's funny you mention your pepper plants -- I have 3 different varieties in the garden + they're all TINY. They all have blooms / peppers growing, but like yours, they're less than a foot tall. I wonder what Mother Nature is up to! LOL.

I'll let you in on a little secret, but our weeds got so bad a couple weeks ago, I had to run through with the lawn mower! We are back under control again.... for now!
