After a hot and dry summer, we got about 3″ of rain over the weekend. With the ground suddenly saturated, my sunflowers and corn started falling over. I braced up the corn with a couple of large garden stakes, but that wouldn’t work for the sunflowers:
The solution I found was to use the fence posts from my rabbit fencing to prop up the sunflowers.
The sunflowers still look kind of sad, with the summer coming to a close:
I’ve known all summer that there was a toad living in my flower garden, just from the signs of his digging, But since he only comes out at night, I never got a picture… until now!
I also found a toad hopping around amongst the corn stalks in my vegetable garden
