Garden journal entry


July 04, 2007. Fourth of July - a little after-vacation holiday. We returned from our ten-day vacation on Monday, to find a garden that was decidedly dry, and ravaged by Japanese beetles. I had seen the first ones rather early this year (in mid-June), but they waited to come out en masse until we left on vacation - the cowards! This morning, Benny helped me capture and squash a bunch. Drop in a bucket, for sure, but it does satisfy the basic urge for revenge.
Some bright points in the garden too - I'll be uploading photos for some plants that are blooming for the first time. Such as the lion's ear pictured here - it shot up from less than 2 feet up to 4 feet and started blooming, all while we were away.
