OK, August is here!  Lull month for much of us as far as planting...but still lots happening!  And we all are in different stages of the game!  

What describes your August?

My first ever year growing melons!  This here is a Minnesota Midget, in a container on my South Annex, LOL.  I have Blacktail Mountain watermelons, also in the annex, and Sakatas Sweets (musk) in the tomatoe and pepper 4x4.  

I have never tasted a homegrown melon in my life.  Hope this is my first of many! sunny

I'm doing better raising butterflies than I am raising veggies, so I'll leave my new avatar alone. Rolling Eyes

I like Suz's spin. I 'grew' fireflies this year, and since they are still out and about (and, yet, on the blink!), and they are beetles...:

My avatar fits in with any weather, so I too will leave alone...

Besides, it goes with my cracked sense of humor, lol!

The Avatar is really too small to see this picture but it is a picture of my Lady Cowpeas almost ready to harvest.  Cowpeas in abundance in my late summer garden here just below Hotlanta.

I hope rain, cooler temps, and lower humidity...deciding on what plants to rip out to make way for fall crops.  Need to learn a bit more about season extension in case I get a late start on a few things.

Thanks SR, for remembering to start this thread!

Cape Cod in the summer time means LOBSTAH PARTIES!  So I get all my co-workers and neighbors party scraps - lobster shells and bodies, clam shells, veggie leftovers, etc - for my compost pile all month long.  What a Face

Cowpeas?  Need to educate myself!  Cool plants, yolos!

August Avatar:  What is going on where you are? Image60

Forgot to post an actual picture of the avatar....

How long does that stuff take to assimilate, CC?

Landarch, I get it.  So hot and dry....  Will need to do any germinating inside.  I can barely keep the actual garden alive, let alone think about seeds.....

Okay, so I lied! When I visited the compost area this morning, there was a perfect volunteer sunflower. I know I've used a sunflower in the past as an avatar, so this time I just used the center. This one is so perfect, it deserves its 15 minutes of fame.

The lobster shells and bodies can decompose in 10 - 30 days, depending on how active the pile is.  My newest pile, started last month, makes short work of them.  Last years pile still contained a couple of really thick claws here and there which I'm still picking out of the fall/spring composted beds, along with clam shells of which I'm beginning to wonder if they ever breakdown.

That sunflower IS perfect, Country!  I like how you used the center as your avatar.

Thanks, CC. I'm sure the chickens will appreciate that center in a couple of weeks, too. rofl
