Today In The Garden, Again!

Today I did the following;

picked the last green beans and peas
weeded two beds
planted 12 tomato plants – is there no end!?
planted 9 eggplants
transplanted 4 basil plants
pulled the peas, put in compost
dug a row of potatoes, put in compost
pulled spent brassicas, added to the compost pile
pulled a row of finished green beans, added to compost!
chopped all the aforementioned garden refuse for the compost pile, check out tomorrows  post for compost pics
hauled a LOT of straw for the compost pile
mulched the new tomatoes
planted a hill of watermelon and a hill of cucumbers

and hours of miscellaneous stuff.


Looking up into the garden gate where pole beans are growing. They should cover the whole arch in a few more weeks.

One lone pepper on this small plant in a pot. All the peppers have put on fruit by the time they were 7 or 8 inches tall.

One stray weedy looking potato from the kitchen pantry. It is a robust grower. Time will tell how many potatoes it makes. There is a story. I will tell it to you

I had a dream that I was in a very old musty ramshackle house. The cupboards were bare. Dusty and completely empty. I was rummaging through everything to see if there was any food anywhere. I kept looking over and over in the same places hoping to find something, anything in the empty cupboards. All of a sudden in a dark corner I found some scruffy potatoes in a worn paper bag. I was puzzled how I could have overlooked them in my meticulous search for food. So instead of eating them, I planted them.

Happy gardening! Check out Marideth Sisco’s blog for more photos of the garden I am sharing at Coot’s Edge this summer.
