Blooming ..... Looking Good

After being back 6 weeks we are pleased at the looks of the garden.  Each week we are applying Miracle Grow and checking for the ever present snails.  For snail areas we are using Sluggo as it doesn't harm dogs, cats or birds.  The garden is responding and looking pretty chipper.   We have quite a few regulars who come in and chat as we work.   One lady even brings in a trowel and helps us weed.  We took pictures and thought we would post them....
