Hello my Tuesday friends :)
I may start rambling during this post as it's late and I'm very tired. Just shake me and wake me up :)
I worked this afternoon and then after super tonight I went out and dug my garlic. It really needed dug up but it's been too wet out. It was still a bit too wet but the rains are suppose to come back tomorrow and stay through the week end so tonight it was.
I didn't plant as much garlic as usual last fall because of my back and I was afraid I wouldn't have enough to last ...but the heads are so big this year that as long as they keep I should be just fine on garlic. Tomorrow I'll spread them out on a drying rack in the shed so they'll cure and be ready to braid and hang in the basement.
I should have ripe tomatoes by the end of the week :) BLT's time :)
I'm impressed that things have done so well with all of this rain. It's a good think that I have a lot of raised beds and the straw bales.
On the back on the right is one group of tomatoes ..the two empty rows in front of them are the late crop of green beans that are just poking up out of the ground.
... the empty row on the left is one I am preparing for a later broccoli planting with corn just to the right of it. This is the red super sweet corn that doesn't get real tall and the ears are shorter. It's my husbands favorite.
These are the winter squash that are starting to go nuts and grow everywhere.
The blackberries turning red and swelling :) Yummy berries will be following.
The Rose of Sharon is blooming like crazy and smells so good. It also needs a good pruning to shape it back up.
The day lilies are all starting to bloom now and brighten things up :)
My brain has given out on me now so I'll share
Today's Random Thoughts
and head to bed :)
Told you I was tired last night... here's my drink...another herbal tea brewed with fresh herbs right out of the garden .
