As you probably don’t remember we planted our garden back in May. We only put in a few tomato plants, a green pepper plant, a zucchini plant and a cucumber plant. At some point in late June we put in a few green bean seeds. H decided she was taking control of the garden this year so we let her. Overall it wasn’t a good gardening season for us. There were millions of weeds, mainly crab grass that just loves growing in our not so great soil.
H’s interest in gardening shrunk as the need for weeding grew. We have been able to eat a couple of tomatoes, some beans and a zucchini. Hopefully we’ll get another few tomatoes and a cucumber but I’m calling this year a failure. Remind me next year that I’ll handle the garden. It’s the only way if we expect to get anything edible out of it. I’m also going to put down some black plastic as soon as this season is over and see if I can kill off all that crab grass.
This you may remember. Back when we were on vacation the husband bought a lemon tree and it has been thriving on our back porch. To tell you the truth I thought for sure it would never grown but it sure has. I’m really hoping that when the weather changes, we can feel hints of it at night, it will continue to do OK in the house.
