    Little tired of the marigolds every year and too much upkeep so looking for something a bit more permanent. Got the Gladiolus coming up, should be blooming soon and some small crape myrtles to take their place next year.

    More Gladiolus starting to bloom and roses fixing to bloom for the second time.

    Crape Myrtles started last year and boy did they take off this spring as you can tell from the first post with this pic.

    Here yu go guys
    Reason I put the garden pics in a separate post so I could quote it and add the next pic below last months pic to see the difference from month to month side by side.

    Next month I'll take out June so you only see July and Aug.

    Dam this **** grew :lol:
    Keep in mind this is one month apart.



    And a few extra's
    [​IMG]

    Makes the vines about 7 feet high right now.
    [​IMG]

    There's a row in there somewhere :dizzy:
    The beans just grew too dam fast I couldn't keep up and now I can't get in there so next year the beans go 4 feet apart
    [​IMG]

    I call this the squash that got away, unlike the fish I have proof it was caught just a little to late, it's too big now.

    And a few from the orchard.
    Boy did the peach tree's take off but don't know what I did wrong, all the peaches fell off so nothing to brag about this year were going to be buying peaches to put up :hmmm:
    Be different if I knew what I did wrong so I'd have learned from it but ****, this sucks.

    Here yu go guys, some pics for August to compare to July
    As promised, quoted last months post, removed Junes pics, left July's and added August.

    And a few extra's
    My Sweet Million Cherry tomato's, almost up to the roof of the garage so I hung two tomato basket stands on the outside of the fence for them to grow down and don't break due to the weight.

    Isn't that the kicker?
    Have seizures and can't drive.

    Even changed career's and went back to school in 2000 figured computers, now there's a safe job sitting in a chair. Majored in Computer Science and went all the way with the MS Certifications on windows 2000 then applied for jobs and come to find out most network admins have to travel between locations.

    But yea, can do anything I set my mind too but drive :confused:
    That includes getting back and forth to work
