August Garden Tour

We have had a fabulous garden season this year. Early in the spring we got more than our share of rain which filled our rivers, lakes and left our ground real soggy and planting a little later than usual. We were very grateful for the rains after a few years of drought conditions. All in all it has been a great year for production, even the birds have had their share of the left over berries.

  3. I love your garden tours! I have fond memories of zinnias! We lived in a trailer when I was in grade school, and I remember Mom having them planted down the length of one side. I used to pick them for her.
