Not a Clue


Sunday, April 03, 2011

There are things other than booze drugs and food that are addictive. I think I personally am in need of a twelve step program to stop raising a vegetable garden!!
I started a large variety of seeds for germination two months ago. Most of what came up decided to check out three weeks ago so I still had to go buy starts. $$$$
Then one of the raised beds had kind of rotted out so I went to the local building supply and came back with 300 bucks worth of cedar 2X12's $$$$
Of course then I needed some compost for the new beds and three yards of that and yet unfinished $$$
Oh did I say anything about the seed trays and soil and tray heater to get the plants to germinate that eventually died and buying the plants anyway.
Well I won't complain about the hours of work I have invested. (That does sound a little bit like whining)
So I really DON'T HAVE A CLUE why I will go through this idioticy year after year to fight the slugs and snails for produce that I could buy at the store; much cheaper.

    Still harvesting; lots of tomatoes after canning about 15 gallons worth of stuff and brocolli, peppers carrots, beets, scallions a few concord grapes and the last of the fall raspberries. Oh and lots of leaf lettuce.
I've put two cloches in; one over some tomatoes and the other over new seed radishes, scallions, lettuce and the last of my brocolli starts. I know I will get more tomatoes; not to sure about the other stuff that went in the second cloche.

    You do it because there's nothing quite like plucking something off a bush in your yard and sinking your teeth into it!
All I have is a couple of spindly blueberry bushes that don't get enough sun, and every year I get just a few bowls of berries. They rarely make it into the house. It's just such a delight to stand there and savor the miracle of food emerging from dirt. I can't wait until I get my life arranged so that I have at least a small patch of garden (complete with sun)

    I wish I had your determination to garden on a normal basis.
