My garden still looks very green, we have been getting thunder showers on and off and this has helped the garden tremendously.
I didn’t have enough time to focus on the Red Cardinal and it flew away. This is the official state bird for North Carolina so there are several living in my backyard.
My string beans didn’t do too well this year, I only get a few string beans every once in a while.
I have plenty of chili peppers this year, some came up on their own and they are a very hardy plant.
This is my first time growing these long peppers and they are doing well.
My cherry tomatoes didn’t do too well this year. I think it was because we had a dry spell in early spring and it never fully recovered from the week of July 4th when I was gone for several days.
These basil don’t grow fast enough, I’m thinking about growing more next year.

My Lao eggplants still look very sad. The bug problem never really gone away, this really bugs me.
My dad has a bucket on his deck to catch the rain water to measure rainfall and Lee has this bumble bee rain measurement, but it works just the same. Although my dad version is free.
Her flowers come along nicely, definitely add some colors to the garden.
I finally know how to fix the problem with the glare in white flower. The key is to set your camera to spot metering mode. This was taken at f/8, 1/50sec, ISO-100, 105mm focal length, spot metering mode, white balance-cloudy, Aperture Priority exposure program.
I bought this tree last year and I thought it has died and when it came back up this year, I’m not sure what it is now. I think it’s a pomegranate tree because of the long leaves.
