Beans and some dahlias are now 8' tall.  With no rain for weeks the paths are very dry.

Sept. 13, 2006:
The forecast of the rains beginning has prompted me to put a plastic canopy over the tomatoes and other potted plants. In spite of the garden being so dry, the dahlias continue to bloom. Check out Blondie blending in with the dry grass. - the perfect camouflage.
