This week I’m hoping to get another round of green beans in the ground and maybe some cucumbers too. We’ll see.
Plants and Perennials:
By some miracle I some how managed to stay away from The Home Depot and didn’t buy any additional plants for the garden this week. I’m not sure how it happened, but I’m sure my checking account thanks me.
What I plan to Harvest this Week:
Lettuce, zucchini, patty pan squash a few herbs.
If only I could grow zucchini year round.
General Garden Maintenance:
In our neighborhood, if you want to cut a tree down on your property, you have to get approval. Lame I know. Luckily the HOA said we could chop down the hideous leaning pine tree in the front yard that blocks the front of the house. I put it on the HH’s honey do list.
I also need to pull all the cabbage that has gone to seed on the side yard as only a few heads of cabbage have survived the crazy heat wave we are having this summer. I’m kind of bummed about this because I was hoping to make a boatload of sauerkraut with the 25+ heads I planted earlier this spring. Oh well. Maybe I’ll have better luck this fall.
Keep my eye out for slugs. That’s pretty much it.
Those are my garden chores for this week.
Keep Calm and Garden On.
