Check out our wildly exciting new addition to Spy Garden:
Dexie found this in the woods and brought it up for us!!
It has a toupee!! HHahaha
I find this ornament to be particularly fitting because the deer used to devour our garden until we installed our deer fence…A symbol of our conquest against the pilfering beasts!
We’ve also installed the new teepee
The plot surrounding it is pretty bare, but hopefully soon will be full of climbing pumpkin vines.
Garden twine on teepee ready for climbing winter squash
In this pumpkin patch…
The Atlantic Giant pumpkin plants are living up to their name.
I planted marigolds and dill in this patch to deter squash bugs
Garlic spiral; the garlic is still a few weeks away from being able to harvest.
There’s going to be a lot of garlic to dig up!
Garlic grows so beautifully
Also among the garlic plants are a few onions that have gone to seed:
This one has a halo!
Like white allium
The first of the tomatoes have appeared!
A few leftover Belgian White carrots from last year starting to bolt.
Fungus in the mulch…
Or did some little creature chew one of these up and spit it out?!
Electrified veins of Swiss chard
Popping the seed “balloons” of the love-in-a-mist flowers is always enjoyable
Bees are very attracted to these blooms.
