Get your gardening gloves and knee pads ready. It's time for another installment of Monday Garden Club.
So, the gardener thinks it's great that we live on a busy road because he can put things out on our lawn for sale and they usually sell within a few days. His version of Craigslist, I guess. This weekend he put a crappy old sailboat out that has been taking up valuable space in our shed. A guy comes to buy it, notices our huge garden in the front yard and offers my husband worm castings in exchange for the crappy old boat. We were only asking $250 for the boat so that doesn't sound too unreasonable to me but the gardener declined and said he'd rather have the cash. The guy came back with his wife and made an offer of $175 and the gardener took it but forgot to ask for a bucket of worm castings. Guess who's in the dog house?
Now that I have that out of my system, on with the show!
(sunflowers, tomatoes, peppers, etc.)
Radishes with a big nasty thistle right in the middle
Spinach, almost ready to pick and eat!
Pole beans almost ready to start climbing
Sugar snap peas
Kohlrabi in the front and pickling cucumbers in the back. I had to replace several of the cucumber plants due to frost. :(
Foreclosure procedings have begun on my poor Mortgage Lifter tomato.
The other tomatoes are doing well.
First of the ripe strawberries. I hear it was delicious!
Raspberry bushes full of blooms
