Big Excitement Scheduled for Friday

I have been meeting with several landscaping companies and selected one to come to help me with my overgrown garden. They are coming on Friday. I will be excited to post some before and after pictures! Should be awesome.

Your powdery mildew post came up in a search. It's hit W WA now. Did you find a way to slow it down enough to keep the plants going?

Thanks for posting your question. Here is my attempt to explain my garden this summer.

Our weather probably played a big part in slowing down the powdery mildew in my garden this summer. During the month of July, temperatures were consistently in the mid 90s. I think the heat dried out the area and kept the powdery mildew from being a problem. I had to laugh, though, because this morning after a month of cooler temps, I notice the mildew appearing on some of the leaves of my pole beans.

And while I was happy the mildew was held in check, unfortunately, when temperatures get that high, everything seems to stop producing in the garden. So while mildew didn't destroy the plants, the heat kept them from producing. The cooler temps have allowed the beans to set blossoms again and I have picked about 40-50 beans last week. The season isn't ruined because we have a long growing season in Southern California. I noticed my zucchini plant which had shut down for a month is finally flowering again and two tiny zukes are on the way to being dinner!

I see you're interested in gardening and have beautiful plant photos and interesting posts about gardening.

It sounds very thrilling with the landscaping companies you're going to take help from!

I want to invite you to participate in our Green Thumb Sunday blogroll. It's for gardeners or gardener wanna be's, house plant enthusiasts, and nature lovers.

All you need to do to participate is to post a picture on Sundays (at least once a month) of a plant in your yard or that you are growing, happened to see somewhere, a landscape or nature scene.

And to put up the (blogroll) links to the other participants, not so many yet, on your blogs sidebar.

Sounds easy doesn't it?

Come on, it's a lot of fun and we're gonna LOVE your GTS posts :-)

We would be thrilled to have you with us!
