And the Garden Grows

One month ago.           
Today.  I am still not sure how well this trough garden will do but so far so good.

 New bay leaf growth.

 Poor Teddy is still holding her paw up. She also has bad dermatitis around her eyes from allergies. We've been giving her Claritin but it is time to try something else.

 All of the tomatoes are staked and tied.

 The only thing that is not growing well are my jalapenos.  They are very small.

 The tomatoes that are doing the best are the ones planted in the bag. Same dirt as the troughs so go figure.

 Teddy is pretty miserable in this hot humid weather.

 Clematis and climbing hydrangeas.

 Oakleaf hydraneas starting to bloom.  Here comes more pollen!

 It's a jungle out there.

 Teddy keeps the squirrels away.

It has rained a lot these last few days and everything is soggy. The flip side is no watering though.  We are in for a nice weekend so things should dry up a bit.  The Blog Tech and I are off to an interesting festival tomorrow so I hope to have some good photos for you on Sunday.
