the gardening diaries: quick update
I don't have much to say this week. My focus has not really been on my garden, oops. I started to weed a little bit last week, I think I already posted about that, but I haven't done much since then.
It stormed yesterday and my corn stalks took quite a beating and are slightly leaning. I also need to add some more supports to my tomato plants, they fell over and the tomato cages are just not strong enough to hold them up anymore with the weight of the tomatoes added to them.
This morning after I mowed the yard, I picked some beautiful veggies from the mini-garden. It has always done well for me since I began using it as a garden space last year. The chickens used to live there so I think that's the secret ;)
I also spotted some "volunteer" tomato plants on the side of the chicken coop that had blooms and some green tomatoes. Jessica has gotten some of these before and they call them "chicken cherries." Ha! I think these look more like grape tomatoes so I'm gonna go with "chicken grapes."
While I was mowing, I spotted more blooms on my raspberry bushes that I got a month or so ago. They were almost dead at Lowe's and I picked two plants off the clearance rack so I paid almost nothing for them. I planted them in the yard and I just let God water them! My pastor's wife, Mrs. Angie, used that phrase with me once and I really liked it so I use it myself!
Ok y'all! Until next time :)
