The Garden – Week 4
I was sick 5 out of the last 7 days. My lawn needs to be mowed, and my garden seriously needs to be weeded. But, because I’m a stickler for a schedule, I’m posting this week’s pics anyway. I pray I have the time and energy to get the weeds under control in the next week.
The squash is growing nicely, but the cantaloupe that I planted both died, and all of the seedlings died. I’m not sure what happened there – I grew cantaloupe in the same spot last year. I may or may not pick up some store-bought seedlings this week.
The corn is looking great.
The beans and peas keep popping up. I think I have them all thinned out, and more grow! Which is a good problem to have, I guess.
The peppers already have blooms on them.
Whatever was eating my tomatoes seems to have left them alone this week. All of the new leaves are bite-free.
However, my bell pepper seedlings are being attacked by something and I just can’t get them big enough to transplant. I’m probably going to have to buy some.
The radishes are thriving.
Carrots popped up! It’s so odd. I planted them the same week I planed the radishes.
The potatoes are just amazing. I’m so excited about this experiment.
The lettuce looks good. I need to thin it out some.
The herbs are hanging in there. I think the little seedlings are getting stronger.
Here is a picture of my apple tree. I’m only showing you this because in a month or so, these branches will be so weighted down with apples that they will be touching the ground – it will look like a weeping willow.
Here is a picture of my baby apples.
How is your garden coming along? It’s awesome that it’s already June!
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I would love to see more of you!
So sorry about the cantelope. :(
I am TOTALLY jealous of your potato trashcan. That looks like an amazing crop!
My green onions are doing GREAT…I have a few that have been large enough to harvest and cook with (as chopped green onions). Yummmmmy.
My zucchini are still questionable. I put the nitrogen sticks in the ground on Tuesday night and I switched to evening watering (so as to not wash away the morning pollen). Only time will tell if the 50+ fruits will continue to grow or follow their predecessors and shrivel and fall off. The largest green ones are at about 3 inches right now.
