Around the Garden: Mid-July

Seems like a long time since I took photos of the gardens. I do believe it coincides with the kids being home for the summer! Got a few shots the other day when I wasn't playing kiddie taxi driver.

I have no idea what these are, but I also planted them in my perennial bed and nearly ripped them out, thinking their tender leaves were merely grass.

You have tomatoes ready already?! You southerners...lol...all that sun. We've had so much rain...I have huge plants, and the fruit isn't that big yet. I did plant some late season tomatoes though...but even the grape tomatoes don't look so great. = (
