Here yu go, June photo's
Things here are burning up and I've done created a monster and can't keep up. Thinking about letting the lawn go dormant and focus on keeping the roses, landscaping, shrubs, tree's and garden alive.

Just to much to water with a hose and were on city water, this months bill will be at least $200

Ok, waited to reply till I got new photo's so here they are, as you can see the lawn is under a lot of stress from the heat and no rain. Only going to get worse with 100+ degree temps and no rain.


You might want to open two browser pages to see side by side shots at before and now.
Enjoy













Landscaping
Still looking good here




Got the honeysuckles almost filled in again, this time neighbor can't get to them and its burning her up










Garden
I got grape wine, LOL Peaches and early girls. Been a good year for tomoto's and going to have plenty of those.


First ripe tomato's coming in




Peaches are about the size of a baseball




Its a jungle in there LOL

Updated photo's:

Peaches anyone? I had to brace the brances with 2x4's they are so loaded.





And the garden, were freezing tomato's today, not enough to get a canner full yet but they are coming in and I'm so glad I went with 6 feet between rows and the vines are over my head


Last year
The dam vines grew together and couldn't get down the row

Nice garden, weed free and orderly, everything looks healthy. I gotta think a lawn fanatic like yourself would consider getting a used walkbehind, say a 36 or 48, and really stripe up that turf to its potential, not that it doesn't look good now. Ever consider that? My neighbor, after using my mowers, went out and bought a new exmark turf tracer just for his place! Anyway, place shows your hard work and good luck with this weather, we have the same pattern going on here, and it ain't pretty.

Thanks Groomer,
I have a 48" rider but it don't show in the latest photo's to well due to the heat. Last cutting really wasn't a cutting and it was a month ago now since I cut last. I cut at 4" and really just zoomed through the whole thing as fast as the rider would go to knock the high places then, not really much to cut

I can't get over this crop coming in, plenty of everything.

Just wish now I would had planted corn
Normally, we just buy a dozen or 2 and put up as its cheaper then growing it. Not this year, hell can't find it
