I like re-using wood from one thing, to another.  I built Ning a chicken house using entirely repurposed wood.  Some of the remodeled rooms in my house have framing recycled form walls I tore out.  The wood is much harder than new framing wood.

Joan, no results yet.  I'm not all that worried either way.  Beyond that I guess. 

Four O'clocks are blooming like crazy.  That was the "try for the first time" project for this year.  That and grafting.  And okra.  The grafting worked amazingly well.  The okra is still sulking and looks bad.

Patricia, I very much like your gawdjeezuzzfreezone! I would have to store it in a place where I could copy and paste it ... I had trouble getting all the d's and z's in the right places. 

Randy, A torn down garage is the perfect material for a wood shed. I have a high wooden fence that is 18 years old and beginning to lean and needing supports. I was thinking about how I would use the wood when I replace the old one. I don't have room for a woodshed, but I think with a little creativity and imagination, I put that wood to good use. I won't replace it this year, so I have lots of time to think about it. 

Spud, I had raspberries for breakfast in the garden, too. They are so good. Yes, I find they get better as the season goes on. Sadly, it is over far too fast. I noticed my blueberries had a great struggle this year because of the failure of my soaker system. That is all replaced now and the bushes are already putting out healthy, robust leaves and the berries begin to fatten and ripen. Can't wait to get that first one in my mouth. 

Daniel, thinking about you and hoping you have good news to share about your test. It is only Thursday and those reports come awfully slowly. It may be another week; whatever the outcome, we stand with you.

My "godless garden" doesn't sound quite right.  In my opinion, a better term would be "my god-free garden", and better yet would be my "superstition-free garden".

This morning, in my godless garden, I got a handful of raspberries, and they were good.  The ones to come on next will be better because they're getting more sun.

I love looking at other's photos. I get ideas from them. I also get envious.

Joan, after reading your comments, I should appreciate my woodshed more! I built it from my torn down garage and scraps of wood from here and there. Serves the purpose of keeping firewood dry.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 16, 2014 at 4:57pm

Steph, I will be watching for them.  

Comment by Steph S. on July 16, 2014 at 4:41pm

I have some pictures I just took in my garden and will be posting them as soon as I get them off my iPhone.

Randy, your home, garden and wood shed are just perfect ... a kind of Shangri-La, a paradise! Seeing your place, it brings back the memories of my former row garden and how different it was to tend it than the one I have now. I love the meditation aspect of my  present design, but do have a longing for rows of corn, beets, carrots, onion, lettuce kohlrabi, turnips, cabbages and beans. 

Your home is so charming, lovely colors and healthy looking plants to greet you home. The wide porch with chairs invites one into a sanctuary. 

I absolutely love the woodshed! We always had one when I was a kid. There is something about going into a woodshed, with the smells, the mice racing back and forth, the cats after them, that rings memory bells for me. Now I have a tool shed and a garage where I store my garden equipment and supplies and enjoy them greatly ... just not like a woodshed with wood smells.

We had a dreadful downpour the other day after a very unpleasantly hot spell. Everything was beaten to the ground, but yesterday morning, everything was standing back upright, as bright and clean and happy as can be. It seems that nitrogen and phosphorous come with electric storms, and so give the plants a nice food boost. It was too muggy to work in the garden yesterday, even though the skies were clear. The temperature and humidity were right up there. 

Today was glorious. I was able to stay in the garden until 12:30 before being forced in by the temperature.
