Before I get to my update I wanted to let you know that next week is the last week to post about your gardens. Make it a post that combines all the best ideas and most wonderful things you have grown over the kinderGARDENS series.
Make a post that pulls it all together for our judges to take a look at.
Remember there will be the following categories...
Best over all (decided by the judges)
Readers choice ( I will set up a poll for everyone to vote their favorite)
There are also 4 sub-categories (if applicable)
Best re-use or re-cycle
Best use of veggies
Best use of flowers
And I will also pick the winner of most for the one of you that has been the most involved in posting, commenting on other's post, etc....the best cheerleader!
The following week winners will be announced!
So put together the best of the best of your children's garden posts over the last 23+ weeks!
OK folks we have...RAIN!
I know living in the Pacific Northwest that must be shocking to you but we have rain and will probably have it for the next say...9 months or so!
In spite of the rain our little maze is going great!
Although it is about time to take down our 'summer' banner before it starts to mildew...darn weather.
Oh and look at my chicken house...I painted it purple!
I must send out a HUGE thank you to Susan Morrison (one of our judges) for giving me the inspiration and courage to pick up a bucket of paint called 'blackberry wine'! Without out her post on purple in the garden I never would have even considered it.
And I must say I love, LOVE it...so thanks Susan!
LOOK...we now have a roof covered with gourds!
Too bad the little guys don't have a hope in the world of ripening...sigh.
Sunflowers are drooping under the weight of ripening seeds and drippy weather.
We have begun harvesting and drying seeds for roasting later this month...yum!
I'm not holding out much hope for corn to ripen either...but it has made a fun addition to the maze whether we get fresh corn or not.
Our beans are still going strong. And I must say are even more lovely adorned with little jewels of rain!
As are the gourd blossoms.
And one last very, very good thing about all this rain...
It means its time to break out the dinosaur boots....grrrrrrr!
So do tell...
What have you been up to in the garden this week!
