Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

What a week it was!

After a fun weekend in Columbus, Ohio visiting our daughter Shana, we got right back into the swing of things here.

The weather is still pretty hot but much cooler than it was last week. So I was able to get out in the gardens and get a few things done!

I harvested the rest of the potatoes, pulled a few plants that have seen better days, and even planted a few new hydrangeas.

Because we’ve been traveling so much and the weather has been so hot, I also had A LOT of cutting to do in the potager garden.

So the house has been filled with fresh flowers both inside and out on the porches.

Some of my dahlia flowers were getting really top-heavy and leaning over after some of the storms we had, so I also spent some time staking them up a little better.

When I plant these gardens next year, I’m going to do two layers of trellis netting instead of just one on heavier-duty, secured stakes in the raised garden beds.

With each passing day, the gardens are looking more and more like fall. It’s such a beautiful transition to watch and one of the reasons I love living in New Jersey.
