Welcome to the Tuesday Garden Party for August 26th

This week is going to be another warm one. I’ve been watering more often trying to keep all the vegetables hydrated. We are going to be in the 90’s most of the week this week so I see a lot of watering in my future. 🙂

My garden actually looks terrible after weeks of dry weather and I haven’t been doing much in it. I should have been watering, but didn’t. Now that we’ve got heat indices back in the 100s – right in time for the beginning of the school year – we finally got much needed rain. I’m hopeful that with the heat and the water, my garden will back in business and I will gather enough tomatoes to make the most awesome Roasted Tomato Sauce ever!
If my own tomatoes don’t do much, I’m taking comfort in the fact that I’m heading down to Missouri later this week and will can up my dad’s surplus tomatoes. He got all the rain we did not and his tomatoes look absolutely amazing this year. I’ve got tons and tons of green tomatoes in my garden – just need them to turn red now. Since my garden is nice and moist again, I really, really need to get out there and weed, finally! I haven’t weeded in soooo long.

Weeding and drying herbs will keep me busy early next week and canning my dad’s tomatoes will keep me busy later on. What will be your garden tasks for the week?

…..On to this week’s lovely features…..
