Finally getting the garden back up to date. It amazes me how fast it can get behind. A week of neglect and the weeds were starting to take over. Today I put the last of the pots with the bottoms cut out around the brussel spouts, broccoli, kale, and squash plants. Then I fed the tomatoes and other vegetables. It is supposed to rain all this coming week so I am glad everything is neat, fed, and ready for the heat and rain.
Pots with bottoms cut out placed in ground around plants in garden.
Pepper plants with pots and slug catchers.
These are all pots that I found in people’s garbage and saved from a landfill. They are now being used to grow beans, tomatoes, scallions, peas and dill.
Everything in the garden is up-to-date for the moment and I am relieved. With a week full of rain and hot temperatures ahead I am hopeful that there will be some substantial growth. Already there has been some progress in all the plants, especially the plum tree and tomato plants and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
