“Gardening requires lots of water, most of it in the form of perspiration.” -Lou Erickson
We’re almost half way through the gardening season in North Country (already). July is the month when I begin to feel a bit tired, and often a bit frustrated. The freshness of June has passed, the days grow hot, the rain more sparse, and the pests more numerous. This season has had mixed temperatures and very little rain, which translates into a lot more hand-holding for many of the plants. So it is especially important for me in July to take time to walk around the gardens and just enjoy the beauty. Below are some photos from yesterday’s walk.
