Watch My Garden Growing

My gardening attempts in a new environment.

My Garden is Growing

We have had some wonderful weather this past week and I thin every growing thing has grown a foot! I will be posting pictures tomorrow to show the growth we have seen this week. Before and after.

We are also planting red, yellow, and blue potatoes tomorrow. Building fences to let the beans and peas grow upright. A bunch of mini-projects in the garden but the outside needs some sprucing and weeding as well.

Oh, and we are putting in a new compost area to recycle the scraps in the kitchen! We started small this year with composting. We have discovered that by running the scraps through the blender/food processor first and then placing them in the garden they compost much faster. My husband has been dumping the raw scraps in a corner of an old garden area but I made him stop because a couple squash seeds germinated! We are going to put them in a different area and throw in some old seed potatoes to watch what happens. The soil is pretty great and the brown matter is available as well. We are going to use some old logs around the area instead of building new raised beds.

A lot to do outside before tackling my indoor projects. Cleaning, cooking, lesson plans, laundry and sleep by 8 AM. Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! Yeah, right.

Look who visited my garden.

We had to cut him loose as he was caught in the deer netting. She/he (I don’t know how to tell the difference) is a 4 foot long black snake. When he figured out we were trying to rescue him, he stopped shaking his tail at me as I cut him free. Ryan snapped this shot as I was about to cut his head free.

Tomatoes, peppers, squash, oh my! Some of my favorite things… Yeah, I mixed my movie metaphors but that is okay.  We have peas and squash, herbs and flowers. I am very excited!
