Tuesday there was no broccoli. Only huge leaves. Saturday this is what we had.
It is now bigger than my hand!
It amazes me the rate vegetables grow. One day nothing and it seems like overnight it has grown 10 times it's size.
It is very dry here. I spent Saturday weeding, which was easy but time consuming. Once I was done I finished mulching everything with straw. With the dry conditions around here, I applied the straw very thick to conserve moisture, and then deep watered everything, trying to save on the water bill as much as possible, BUT not loose all the money and hard work that has already went into the garden.
I really need to get more rain barrels set up. We are hopefully going to get more rain later this week.
Do you use rain barrels or just water from the hose not worrying about the cost of water?
