What’s Growing In The Backyard Mavis…
It has occurred to me that I have been seriously slacking in the blogging department as of late. I never understood those people who said “Oh I wish I had time to do that.” Now I get it. I understand what they meant. Only I don’t like it.
I’ve pretty much always been one of those people who can’t sit still. It makes me uncomfortable. Staying busy… makes me happy. But lately a few more things have been added to my (already full) plate and I’m finding it hard to fit everything in. I.AM.NOT.COMPLAING. I’m just telling you… just in case you have been wondering why I haven’t been blogging away as usual.
My 8′ by 4′ garden box of cucumber plants is coming along nicely… SLOW… but getting there none the less. I spotted a ton of 1/2″ cucumber starts… Maybe if I sang to them they’d grow a little faster. Hmmm…
Zucchini on the other hand… when is that ever a problem? I seriously think there was a mix up at the seed factory. These pale green zucchini are not the Black Beauty seeds I purchased (or at least they’re not what was pictured on the seed packet). Does anyone know what variety this is?
I’ve decided I’m going to dig up half of my volunteer potato patch this weekend. Partly because my In-Laws are coming to visit (and they’ve NEVER dug up potatoes before) and because I want to get started on my compost pile for next years garden and I need somewhere to put it. I have BIG PLANS for this space for next year. I’m thinking I’ll expand the area to about twice the size it is now (during winter of course… that way I can work on it while the Handsome Husband is at work… and by the time he comes home it will be dark… That way… if I start on a Monday I’ll have all week to complete the expansion and he won’t notice it until the following Saturday! Am I a genius or what!
So how about you guys? What have you been harvesting this week?
