Outdoor Hour Challenges & Nature Study
Most of my garden is planted. This year I wanted more space, less crowding.
My tomatoes are doing well.
Some of the beans are doing okay.
But a lot of the green beans were eaten by some critter that got into the garden. That critter even ate a lot of my onions. I haven't seen any evidence of the yellow squash I planted yet, or the sunflowers. We just planted the green squash and the cucumbers less then a week ago, as well as some lettuce, thanks to my dear daughter B for blessing me with her labor!
So, here are the onions that still survive:
Mostly I feel like it is a never-ending battle against the "weedlings" (weed seedlings). There are hundreds of maple seedlings in the yard; I'm pulling them constantly. But even more difficult are the wire-grass sprouts that are coming up everywhere.
Trying not to water today, as it's supposed to storm tonight. It's like a game, though, like washing your car. If I water, it will rain; if I don't water, it won't rain. I guess I had better go water.
