Sunday Garden Tour This week we had more rain and more mosquitoes, but we braved the elements and did some work. 1. Gavin hung a swing. 2. I weeded this garden bed with... 3. this super sharp death hoe that my sister sent me as a bday present. 4. Red Deuce tomatoes. Hopefully we have better luck with these than the last variety. 5. Planted some spinach, bunching onions, and beet seeds. 6. Beet seeds look like granola. 7. I love my asparagus fern. It died down to the ground last winter and came back beautifully. 8. It even has some tiny flowers. 9. Flowers on my Rose Creek Abelia that I rescued from the curb. 10. Tiny buds on the Meyer Lemon Bush. #sundaygardentour
I have been putting off the fall garden for months. I’ve been making excuses for avoiding the nursery with a toddler and baby, for not going out into the heat, for not dealing with mosquitos, for staying out of the rain, etc etc. But this week I forced myself to take the boys to the nursery (it was a little hectic but not as bad as I thought), and today I found a few minutes to weed the beds and plant seedlings while the boys got some Dad time. I got some broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage in the ground and about 85 mosquito bites on my arms and legs but it reminded me how much I love to work outside. I’m on the lookout for some climbing veggies to put in my third bed so SA friends- if you see any let me know!
