Is the drought over?

Because I can bring myself to look at the garden again.  Everything bloomed when the rain returned, making the pollinators very happy.


I picked the satsuma that has been on the tree for almost a year. It was pretty tasty. I don’t think they are supposed to be green, but it was. Hopefully the tree will make more!


We didn’t even make it to the Wildflower Center sale this fall. I don’t have anywhere to plant things! There are some patches of dead grass in the front yard that I have been thinking about digging up, but I haven’t managed yet. My main goal this weekend is to get a gate for the vegetable garden so I can plant something in there. The dogs ruined so much last year, I don’t want to go through that again!

    How can a fruit be on a tree for a year without rotting or being eaten by a critter? I nearly bought a citrus tree at the Natural Gardener over the weekend, but I think I should do more research first. They seem complicated.

    In the land of weird, I have watermelons right now. Isn’t it a bit late in the season?
