Gardening & Problems Loading Kitties Pictures

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

For some reason I cannot load another kittie picture....been trying for days. I may have to load my camera on my other computer & try it from there.

This morning I plowed the remainder of the garden (by hand with a 3-prong rake) where the potatoes were (I dug them last week), leveled it with a rake (upside down) & planted 2 rows of yellow wax beans. I also pulled my 4 rows of onions as they had done all they were going to do. Worse crop of onions ever!! I think my fertilizer was too old, so I got new sack & we will see with the wax beans. Tomatoes are blooming & putting on small tomatoes.
I picked my 1st cucumber this morning & am looking forward to having it with lunch. I also have small bell peppers (about like a golf ball right now).

There is nothing like growing your own vegetables, but it is a lot of work. My DH used to be a big help (he is still my "adviser") but is unable to physical work anymore so it is up to me.

Have a great day. I have rambled long enough.

    Nothing like veggies fresh from the garden! It IS work, but worthwhile.
