thank you. this is my best year so far with a garden. I meant to take my camera to update pics this morning, but I forgot it. everything is so lush, green and full. cukes are starting to really put out the blooms. I saw blooms on a couple tomato plants and even a squash! I have a pumpkin that's taking off faster than I can get it finished and where I want it. I think I'll have to just leave it as it is! I might even manage a watermelon by the 4th! and I noticed yesterday there's several corn popping up.
I worked in raised beds this year, so I wouldn't step on the toothpicks! I'll be on the hunt for some pine needles this afternoon so I can start some blueberry bushes (am not buying peat!) and I bet those needles would stand up just fine in the dirt. but the toothpicks I could color code to mark what's where! *gets excited* *tucks nerdy organization away*
Over the next few weeks I'll be working hard in flower beds and oh man, those seeds are soooo tiny. I think I'll be forced to do a little scattering and hoping. I'll have to find some way to mark them or it'll drive me crazy.
Started a garden when Son wanted to grow carrots. When not reading, in the dirt, canning or baking, I write Country, Contemporary Romances.
