Land of the Woods – July

davidniddrie_woodlandgarden_july-7571

After a June warmup and some late showers, July came with record-breaking heat and dryness to the Lower Mainland. No rain at all this month, and searing temps really gave a boost to the garden. The squash varieties flowered and grew into little acorn and kabocha squash – cute lil’ things. Tomatoes shot skyward, herbs sprouted from seed and strawberries kept coming. Peas and beans did not fare well, and after a short harvest they fell to the wayside. Something was up in our neighbourhood…many of the gardens on our street suffered a pea/bean breakdown.

The wild flowers we sowed around the yard were really coming in, and the existing landscaping provided a new colour palette each week. Here are a few scenes from the Woodland garden in July. Click on the first to view large.
