It was my turn to water the other garden for the next couple of days... coincidentally, unrelatedly (!? Although I could argue I was blessed, hah) - I heard rumbling of rain in the forecast so I just didn't do it.
Then I got too busy to even check on it if I wanted to, hah. And a few days passed. Okay only 3 days passed total. I am sooo protective over these things though and I swear the whole time I was thinking have to go check have to go check, hahah!
So I went to check today. And oh my gosh. !!!
I walked into this landscape
And I was feeling kind of guilty
It WAS like 80 degrees before the rain so in my amped up mother hen thought processes I was sort of hypothetically imagining me leaving it by itself for 3 80 degree days? Oooh. I think it was just an interesting sensation to have it all on me. My best girlfriend and I just spent some $$ on some nice plants last weekend
And in my paranoid mind I was thinking, oooh, what if I go there and everything is messed up because I didn't force myself to just go check!?
Oooh I will say the basils and peper patch needed a dose of sluggo, if not a slug exorcism >__<; other than that..
I walk in all apprehensively
to see everything before me
And it looked amazing!!! This one gourd/pumpkin/etc plant we had ... had gone mad vining for the first time, it grew like 2 feet in 3 days!! and we got our first tomato in that garden and the rain storm fully watered the entire plot very deeply... any watering I woulda done before the storm REALLY would have been overkill! I was amazed that me sitting back and staying out if it was the best thing to of done!
I weeded the general area, planted a mystery volunteer tomato seedling in a forever-container, watered seedlings & plants that weren't in the rain, and had a great day!
