It's Pierre de ronsard, a prolific climber.
Weeded and cultivated with the tiller . Ran the weed whacker . Then it got too hot . Will go out again as it cools a little . Hit 90 today.
Watered, watered, watered. Very hot today and humid. The thunderstorms have missed us for the last several days and it doesn't take long for the ground to get really dry. Nothing like rain water to make the garden grow.
Those are really pretty! I love roses.
Harvested my turnip seed . Peas are filling out . Summer squash are growing nicely . Pumpkin and winter squash are up . Cantaloupe are coming up . The rains have missed us but tomorrow afternoon has a good chance .
Got wicked thunder storm last night shook the house, poor dog sat on my lap shaking. Just got Alerts for storm moving our way again tonight, never fails to hail soon I get all peppers planted. Still getting stuff dried out from last week rain.
Well today not much will get done, except clearing out the coop, into the one row we're not growing in now, it will go.
Yesterday I finished tilling the garden and removing most of the weeds, I got a rock hung up in my little Honda so I had to do the last bit by hand and hoe.
I use the top tiller to just rid the garden of the weeds because I do not like to disturb the nice growing substrate I've already got going. I till no more than 6" deep at the most.
We do have a few bantams loose on the yard and they scratch and help out a little, but they seem to concentrate on the barer end of the garden, not on the ends that actually
has an abundance of weeds. All help is appreciated in our garden.
We should be picking another bowl like this of cukes today
And probably a gallon of blueberries.
Our tomatoes are just starting to change colors, but I'll pull a large one for Fried Green Tomatoes tonight
Have a Great Day

I found a neat tilling method on pinterest.
This man used wire and made chicken tunnels, He placed a few chickens in it and they debugged, de-seeded, weeded, and tilled his rows. I will find the link and post it for you. I am seriously considering it.
Great Aussie intuition! My chooks are in my winter vege patch doing the weeding as I type.
I tried this in the spring put 25-30 bales of hay in the chook yard , emptied all the autumn leaves in there as well ,can't even see it now. Those chicken feet are great little tillers.
