I have some before and after pictures for you this month. The dollar weed was winning, so it was time to use a tiller and reclaim the garden.
I planted my bean seeds expecting warmth, and we were disappointed. We ended up tilling much of it and replanting. My husband made those neat arches, and hopefully we’ll have lots of tasty cucumbers from them.
Even if they don’t produce much, they still look cool. 🙂
The shed bed had become overgrown with bolting mustard. I had some garlic almost ready to harvest, but I decided to just pull it up and make a fresh start. One of the bulbs made it inside and was discovered in an unlikely place-more on that later.
I had 3 blueberry bushes languishing by the back fence. That’s my wonderful husband there transplanting them. Really this garden renovation would not have been possible without him.
He was so sweet to help me. When I mentioned that blueberries like acidic soil, he carefully layered pine straw and coffee grounds in their new home. Awww… what a guy!
Here’s some veggies that I harvested before the tilling: green and wax beans, carrots, turnips, and a forgotten radish.
My to-do list:
- Till gardens.
- Plant more green beans, basil, okra, bell peppers, and southern peas.
- Mulch cucumbers with compost.
- Transplant eggplants.
How’s your garden?
