Umm….the garden is going insane. I can’t believe how much bigger everything has gotten in just a few weeks. Here’s a quick rundown of the progress:
- The tomatoes, the anaheim chili, and some of the gourds are flowering
- Everything is up now, and VERY healthy
- The mulch is doing an excellent job of keeping my soil moist; I’m watering much less often
- I still have to replant a cucumber (note to self: you LOVE cucumbers; go plant one!)
I planted FAR too many potatoes. I see that now. I’m going to have to do some serious thinning. Which I hate doing. There’s something wasteful about tearing out a perfectly good plant. I might just have to start another bed…
Lastly, the gourds are taking over. It’s not pretty. I have about 10 volunteers sprouting out of the mound. They are threatening my beautiful Stars and Moons watermelon sprouts, and I cannot allow that.
But, I simply can’t pull them out and throw them away. Like I said above. Not a fan.
So I’m offering the starts to a good home. If you want one or two, leave a comment and I’ll arrange a time to bring it over and help you prep a mound in your yard.
