Dog Days of Summer are Gone!

Or are they? We just had a weekend of 100 degree weather. Seems like summer is still here to me.

Mom had a flat of Rosemary to plant. I tell ya gardenin' & fetchin' really go togefur. Mom spent the mornin's tryin' to get those plants in the ground. I helped by bringin' my ball and makin' her take a break once in a while. Poor woman would work her hands to the bone if it weren't fur me! BOL!

Mom is a gardener of good intentions. Unfurtunately, she's not a gardener of good results! The road to 'you know where' is paved with... Poor plants! At least Rosemary seems to survive ok around here.

Anywoof, Mom is a city girl transplanted into the mountain country. Her furst garden out here got eaten by the deer. Then Dad put up a chain link fence. Next she learned all the nice flowers the gophers love. So now she just plants things that seem hardy and hope they don't end up being a gopher favfurite. Rosemary seems immune to gophers & deer & mom's lack of a green thumb. Plus it smells nice without being overly fragrant.

Wellwoof, Happy Fall Ya All!

Try the Sages (lots of differnt varieties) and Thymes as well. The high "essensial oil content" ones like that stand a chance.. also Lavender.. and many of other herbs.. they are pretty hardy too !!

It will make for a fragrant (and edible for you too!) garden.

I am a country girl.. for now gardenless till we can move next year... its killing me!!!!!!

Thanks, Flicka. We do have some Sages that are surviving. Haven't tried the Thymes, thanks fur the tip. We did have some Lavender and our neighbor has some beautiful Lavender. But seems one of those darn gophers got a taste fur ours and they actually ate that, too! Ate the Agapanthus that they are not supposed to eat as well! One out of 5 plants made it. Anywoof, thanks fur the suggestions! We'll give them a go!
