WOW,,,,, what a great week this has been. As of yesterday our corn is as high as our Elephants eyes (both of them). BUT the birds have gotten a lot of what we planted. So we are reconsidering planting a second crop since our neighbor Donna Bear and her husband (Mr. Donna Bear?) grow some of the bestest sweet corn in the county and only charge about $3 a dozen. Makes the effort seem a little silly.
Other stuff up is Lettuce, Spinach, Beets, Carrots, Beans, Squash, Cucs, Zucs, Peppers, and of course Tomatoes, with lil ‘maters on them!!!!!!!
BUT the Fruit trees are slow this year except for the Peaches which are full of fruit. The Flowers around the Garden Patio have taken over and are expanding.
And our summer feathered friends have had babies and are getting into some heavy Aero-Batics.
Strawberries have been slow to ripen and I’m not sure what to make of this. Possum’s berries have been nice and ripe since the beginning of May.
This week (if we get a dry day) we will plant more Carrots, Beans, and make another try at Eggplant. The EP’s we put out have been decimated by Rove beetles. Guess i should have dusted right in the beginning. Also we will get some more onions, beets, lettuce, and spinach in.
We also will start clearing for the new Green house if the weather clears enough. Last week we bought the cement blocks that will be the base it will sit on, so clearing and setting the blocks is the next step before it gets too hot.
If you have not started your own veggie garden, what are you waiting for???? Everyone can grow some of their own food. AND the fun of doing it, the joy of watching it all grow, and the delicitudes of eating veggies that are so fresh they think they are still in the garden is one of the true wonders of life. So find a spot, or a pot, or anywhere there is some soil and sun and PLANT!!!
