SO, a few weeks have passed, it’s officially summer and my garden has undergone some changes already.
The tubs have been topped up with soil mix and manure and have been replanted.
I reaped a few pods of black eye peas before they were ruined by too much rain so I tossed those into the leaf pile/tub, but some plants made it. Like the heirloom tomatoes, basil and a scraggly cucumber which I will uproot soon if no fruit develop further.And this…..………huge awe mustard! Seriously these leaves are about as long as my forearm.
The spinach has been cut back so many times and look at it go.See all those eaten leaves on the tobacco? That’s exactly why I grow it. To keep those caterpillars away from my greens. Loving how this lush shade corner is coming along.
And check this out….my side garden is back.
And a garden is more than the plants. Mine is my favourite spot to sip my tea on weekends and where I go to breathe a bit deeper on any given day.
Happy summer gardening from me to you.
