gardening

I think I may have taken on a bit much garden this year.

We have the kitchen garden:



The community garden plot:



And now the brand new former orchard uberplot on steroids:



It's a lot of work. :(

But eating all those fresh veggies straight from the garden makes it so worth it!!


Summer


The new face of our town, rice paddies bulldozed to make way for new houses.  The brown on the left is wheat.


The mists are really beautiful but deceptive.  You can think it will be a cloudy day and WHAM at 10:00am out comes the sun and it's hot, hot, hot.


My two monkeys in the garden.


Alps Park.  The same park as the Christmas light up.  Aren't the Alps beautiful?

Summer here is so beautiful.

It's so different from summer in Australia.

Everything is vibrantly green.

And weeds grow literally overnight.

The rain is torrential and can last for a few minutes or a few days!
