It’s the time of year where you feel as though you live in the garden.
I’m finding new shoots of plants I thought were rained out! Carrots so delicate and fragile in appearance are sprouting and looking good. I thought I would need to re sew them! Planting more peas today as nearly all was lost in the last flood of rain. These 2 little clumps are all that made it
Container potatoes have been planted (late I know) and are sprouting! My first time with containers and potato’s so I’m very pleased to see the tips of green. One more bucket to plant today.
The potted & hanging tomato’s are taking off like gang busters, double the size of those in the garden and planed 2 weeks after! I’ll need to put some lattice behind the potted plant to support the fruit weight.
I have melon coming up in my green beans. Although the garden doesn’t hold water, all I can figure is we had so much rain in such a short period of time it floated the seeds over. Transplanted they seem to be doing well.
Although there is a bit (quite a bit) of replanting to be done, I’m pleased with the growth so far.
I wrote most of this this morning. 2 more buckets with potato’s are done & chives are replanted. After spending quite a bit of time weeding today, I found 3 more melons growing amid the beans along with my missing tomato plants! I thought they had withered away or rotted with all the rain. Nope, they were cuddling with the green beans! The Hussy’s!
Have to transplant them tomorrow & replant the peas…so now what do I do with all the seeds I have starting in pots to replace them! I think Mr Fix~it would have a cow if I even mention more garden space. Think I’ll look into more tubs!
Gotta love it!
