Tuesday Garden Party 8.19.14

Are you enjoying the great posts we’re getting linked up each week at the TGP? I know I am!

What does the height of August look like in your garden? From what I’ve been reading, it’s an off year for many parts of the country – some are cooler than normal (like this week’s host, Brooke, who mentions that below) and some are warmer and dryer than normal, like us here in the Pacific Northwest. Holy cow, my kitchen started looking like September (our usual time we see loads of garden produce and are canning and preserving like crazy) at the beginning of August! I’ve got apples to make into sauce (Gravenstine), tomatoes to can, green beans to freeze and now the corn is coming on. Oh, and we wouldn’t want to forget the zucchini now, would we? It’s been hard to get in the mood, actually – it just feels odd. Oh, well, maybe you guys can help me get my canning mojo going – let’s get to the features and new links, ‘kay?

Really, this is August in Indiana?

I am in udder amazement. Temps in the low 60s till mid-morning have made me energized to clean-out perennial beds and declutter the garden. By cutting back particularly seedy spreaders, I am getting the jump on the 2015 season. I was a lazy garden girl last year and fed the birds my seedheads all winter long. This spring all the weeding about did me in! So I will be saving a few seeds and the rest go to the compost pile! Plus, my beds look so much better. I hope you will pop on over and see more of my country garden!
