That face-slap, OMG I can't BELIEVE I forgot that moment

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

One of the worst things about being busy is that you forget about a lot of things.

And I've been REALLY busy! In the last two weeks, I've had to work every weekend, I've driven 3.5 hours to Warsaw, 3 hours to downtown Chicago, another 3.5 to Fort Wayne....not to mention lost a very good friend and mentor.

So I'm a little scatter brained. But when I logged into Facebook, for the first time in over a week, I finally realized a pretty important thing I'd forgotten.


I haven't been out there in over two weeks!! Luckily I put down hay to protect my plants, and it's been raining, but seriously?! HOW could I have completely forgotten it?!

What do you think? Will anything be salvageable this year? What are the odds that my tomatoes and peppers have lived through my neglect?!

And do I still have time to plant eggplant, squash, zucchini - or have I missed my window already?

    Get some of the larger starter plants and you should still get some of those longer to picking veggies. Look up first frost for your area, that's the cut-off.

    That is why I love having a garden at home, its hard to forget.
    If its been raining chances are what you have planted so far will be okay. You might have missed being able to harvest a few things but most will be fine. The eggplant , squash and zuccinni, if you can buy plants may do ok.

    I'm sorry to hear about your friend. + you've been very busy, you can't be expected to remember everything.

    As it's been raining, you might be ok with what you've already planted and I think you'd still be ok to plant things like squashes, zucchini or pumpkins that grow later in the year.

    You have been suuuuuperrrr busy. And I am so sorry about your losing your friend and mentor. Don't worry about neglecting the garden plot. Be kind and gentle with yourself and make sure you don't neglect yourself. Take care!

    Weeding the plot will be a great exercise. Just try not to pull the vegetables with the weeds!

    I just planted seeds of squash and pumpkins a week or so ago, you could always buy a start or two?
    I'm sure with a little TLC the plants you already have will do great.. who knows they may already be doing great!

    Don't know your seasons where you live but vegetable plants in east AR are pretty hardy. Weeds can make harvesting a problem, but water is critical. I would plant a late crop of vegetables here because it may be November before we get a killing frost.
