I had to pull up my vegetable garden. :( The hard freeze from Saturday killed everything. I was blessed enough to get enough to do some canning and freezing. I was just hoping for a few more weeks. Oh well, there is next year.

What a nice thing to do! Hoping I can get out when I get home today and check my beds for weeds---know I have a few out there with all that rain last week.

In the spirit of "I Will" I weeded 2 beds at the neighbors who are away till October. It's a jungle out there.

Got in 15 minutes with my dh out in the back alleyway last night pulling weeds----then I had to go to water aerobics---but with the drought, it was not that bad back there.

We are still in the rainy season, but it has not rained for the last week ,so out came the water hose this morning in an effort to keep the few plants alive (perhaps for the African Snails,they are in hiding now its dry).It is getting dark early these days ,my evenings are now spent doing other things in the house. Summer is almost over here ,children are back in school after 10 weeks. Good luck and God's blessing to all.

Getting the "soil" mix mixed and into 4 x 4 boxes for SFG fall garden. Seemed to be a difficult task for me. I ran out of peat and vermiculite. I told the man at the garden center 68 miles away it wouldn't be enough but his comments made me feel I was not doing my math correctly. I was. I had enough for only 2 beds, not 4. I won't return to that center to purchase more tomorrow.

With all the rain this weekend and more for the next 3 days, cutting grass next weekend will be a real calorie burn and good minutes for here.

Hand watered my plants for the last time the other day----wanted to use miracle grow on the flowers one more time---now Mother Nature is taking care of them with water as I will be pulling up some of them in about 3 weeks or so to plant winter pansies out front----I will say it has been a poor growing season for sure---most of my flowers did okay as I used drought tolerant plants for the most part.

Between yest. and today, got in about 25 minutes. I may do more since I have a bit more of trimming to do and the grass in my flower bed is knee high!!! You can barely see some of my potted plants, so I guess it needs done! emoticon It just won't do itself! emoticon
Will be planting a container with peas soon. I hope they'll do well.

Its from dry to rain ,African snails and slugs. The fight continues even at night. For a number of days I was trying to find out what was eating my pepper bushes and young fruit,last night I scattered some bait and today I got over 40 disabled snails ( disabled because if left on they own they will soon recover go into hiding and return with spite) .It is work both day and night if I'm to get anything this year. The mangoes are almost gone, the Breadfruits are back so its raking leaves and making compost. I now have to be careful with the young snails which like that type of environment.. emoticon

15 minutes pulled some weeds out of the 2 places where plants are planted directly in the ground. My only regret is that I didn't get too many roots, so it'll all be back for another go round later! emoticon emoticon Afraid I am hiring a guy to do the back as it got too tall for my push mower and he has a tractor/riding mower. It'll make short work!! emoticon

20 minutes watering by can as garden all in containers! Tomatoes doing well. Stalks 8 ft, high and not very many tomatoes, but like Lecates', they taste nice!! Green peppers doing extremely well!!! Something ate all the leaves off the kohl rabi and most of the carrots. Ugh!
Have a great gardening day!

15 minutes yesterday to water and pull a few weeds---the benefits of raised beds, not as much care once you get going. Did get a few tomatoes off the vines yesterday. Not very big but nice tasting.

160 minutes harvesting - lots of okra and potatoes. Had a heavy rain that knocked over the tomatoes and took forever to get them back up. Luckily no damage to most of them. Some dear soul must have liked my peppers and harvested them for me and left me one. emoticon

I don't know why I haven't been posting here b/c it takes me a good 15 minutes twice/day to keep my plants watered and I have to do that by watering can. (Lots of trips) So, I'll start now, 15 minutes today so far.
Cherry tomatoes, tomatoes and green peppers doing great. Something ate up my kohl rabi leaves and rendered them done & gone and carrots slow, but seem to be growing. Lettuce continuing to produce nicely! Flowers are lovely!

No rain again last night like we werer supposed to get, if we don't get it tonight will need to water. Just checked the gardens out, but didn't really do anything in them.

Hopefully back on track, since got busy with work trips for past few months and regained a few pounds. Today did only watering outside (almost 100 degrees here), parked further off so walked about 10 min each way (up and down hill) to get to Farmer's market (got some gigantic zucchini), and walked for almost an hour on treadmill while watching part of a movie...and have reserved some movies for pick up at library to watch while on treadmill...back to treadmill instead of outside due to the extreme heat currently.

Didn't get to the garden yesterday, but will today as we had a lot of heavy wind, with no rain for a few days. Will need to water.

We had a soaker two days ago in the middle of the night, but by mid day you wouldn't know it by looking at things. The rain barrel is the only give away. Will have to check the soil today to see if I need to water. Did some pruning of the roses and weeding around them, and weeding in the crape myrtle beds. 30 mins

30 min of watering last night. I'm getting really frustrated watering. I hope it rains soon, because it feels like no matter how much I water, its not enough.

Went out earlier while it still not too hot and watered about 15 mins. If the day isn't too hot I may go out and do more...got two weed gardens need attention and a flower bed down by the road which is begging for water.
