A July morning jungle

The lines were drawn and the advancing vines paid no heed.

Sweet potatoes marching on pumpkin. Watermelon winding through to climb abandoned tomato cages.

A butterfly weed returned to hearty trumpets.

The okra is starting to synchronise. We may soon see more than one per plant per harvest.

And a zinnia has shouldered its way through the green beans to feel the sun on its head.

    When the scorching heat of summer arrives, there’re always peppers and okra! RIP maters and cukes; see you again come autumn.

    Watermelons!!! Best of luck to your garden. Mine is being over-taken by squirrels and rabbits! Eek!

      I am not sure I water often enough for watermelons’ taste, so we shall see if they fruit.
      I have learned I need to enclose my tomatoes in old strawberry plastic clamshells, otherwise I’m merely feeding squirrels.
      The wild life appreciates you!
