Weekly Garden Update
Things are growing nicely in our garden. I spent all day Sunday planting more tomatoes, onions, and pepper plants.
We know have 24 tomato plants planted, 8 to go. Twenty are in the garden and the other 4 are in pots on our deck. Some of them have already put on tomatoes! That doesn't include the 3 volunteers that have sprung up in the "kitchen" garden.
The potatoe boxes need more compost, they grow so fast and are now blooming! We've already added two more wood layers to the boxes.
Some of my carrots were showing their tops and needed dirt hilled up on them. When I was weeding the bunching onions I seen a potatoe laying right on top of the soil from my volunteer potatoe plant. I covered him up, but it was nice to know it was putting on potatoes as well.
The grape vines are growing steadily.
I did a lot of weeding also, and there is still more to do, but I am ahead of them in the garden anyway. We won't talk about the weeds in the front flower beds along the sidewalk coming into my front door. I have to get it weeded. It needs remulched so bad to cut down on the weeds. It's been about 4 years since I added any. Hopefully I will be able to get a truck load of mulch this week or coming weekend.
I'm really sore from the planting & weeding marathon this weekend. Just when you start to get used to it, gardening season is over!
Did any of you plant any more this weekend?
