A storm rolled in Tuesday evening and the weather has been so nice since , so I've been busy in gardens. I pulled all the parsley and weeds out of the herb bed , then I weeded around the rocks.
The leaf lettuce has really grown and the " Tommy Toe Tomato " has bloomed.
Weeds , weeds and more weeds !
I pulled all the broccoli and cabbage plants out of this bed. The heat and worms won this battle , although the chickens and the compost bin will benefit from the leaves and stems. Now I can plant something else here , it'll probably be more squash and cucumbers.
Ms. Crew didn't fare so well in the storm , so I had to stand her back up , she's a little dirty. She's named after my 1st grade teacher , she was mean and pretty scary to me . I haven't seen any deer near the garden since she's been standing guard. Her basket has used soap bars in it to add scent.
I weeded the cucumbers , added mulch and the cages , they're full of blooms.
The zucchini squash and yellow squash are blooming ...............
and they've have really grown in the last week.
These are baby roma tomatoes , they've been weeded and dirt pulled up around them.
We have banana peppers ............
Cayenne peppers ......................
and " Sweet Wonder " bell peppers growing.
I've still got to weed all those peppers , the homestead tomatoes , greenbeans and the corn. I sure hope this weather hangs around for a few more days.
