Pond is now crystal clear. Looking at it today I thought we had a strange algae growth until I touched it and it turned out to be worms. Waterfall worms apparently. We blasted them down into the pond where the fish are happily Eating them.

My compost is clearly not hot but it's growing great pumpkins

Got 1 good pepper from the greenhouse. I've had so much pest pressure in there this year it's been a disaster!

I had hummingbirds visiting my bee balm. That was a first

Another first was when I went into the greenhouse to discover we had tomato hornworms. No one I know has ever seen them before. My kids loved them.

We took about 12 of them out of the greenhouse and put them in a tub. Kids tried feeding them all sorts of plants but alas, they only eat tomatoes apparently.

The greenhouse got out of control very quickly.

I have 1 basket gourd plant and it's gotten out of control.

The grass and alfalfa are huge!

Also, I did some very small, one tractor bucket scoop swales along a fence line and transplanted 6 caragana starts there. Only 1 died. The rest are doing great.

The excessive rain also brought our first blight. We felt blessed to watch the toadflax die.

It has been one of wetest years. After last year's drought it's welcome.

We planted Chinese empress trees. We certainly hope they are as invasive and hardy as advertised.

I e wanted to start this for awhile but...so busy! So I'm going to be adding pics from spring till now.

I have a drain area for our swim pond and sealed to various trees. Hoping to grow cherries, nectarines and peaches here. These plants are pushing my zone a bit but I'm hoping the pond helps!
