Summertime and Gardens of All Kinds
Monday, June 21, 2010
Well, I must say I have been keeping myself, hubby, friends and relatives happy this year with our bountiful garden!
Starting with amending the soil, hoeing up rows to plant, planting, weeding, fertilizing, weeding, watering~LOL
The rewards are being reaped!
Wonderful almost sweet squash, zucchini. Cukes out the wazoo! Watermelon beginning to sprout (cannot wait!)
Oh I didn't mention along with tomatoes all the peppers, red, green, cayenne, jalapeño...pico de gallo here I come!!
Tried to use a natural remedy for some sort of bug in the garden and the ammonia that was a part of the "remedy" killed the leaves on the zucchini and darnit I still saw some of the bugs altho not as many- GOOD!
Now around back I have a patio garden with strawberries and container tomatoes so I can just reach out and enjoy at my whim~LOL!
Oh I do love summer months with the long daylight hours, fresh chemical free produce and the fun of playing in the dirt! Only problem in late afternoon and early evening are the "skeeters" Hmmm...perhaps next year a lemon garden of herbs and lemon plants to accompany the rest! I have never tried that but am willing to learn!
Oh...one more garden of ours with a friend peeping out to watch me...dear Jae...these photos are for you!!
