IN THE GARDEN...





WELL FINALLY...THE RAINS ARE HERE! ITS BEEN SO DRY AND EVEN THO I'VE BEEN WATERING, THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE RAIN TO MAKE THE GARDEN GROW. THE WATERMELON VINES HAVE BEEN A SUCCESS WITH A TOTAL OF 9 WATERMELONS GROWING! THE MIZUNA HAS BEEN A STAPLE IN OUR SALADS NOW AND I'M PLANNING A BIG PESTO MAKING DAY SOON WITH ALL OF THAT BASIL...THE WHITE MOTHS HAVE ABSOLUTELY DEMOLISHED MY CABBAGES AND SUMMER BROCCOLI AND HAVE EVEN HAD THEIR TIME WITH MY KALE SO I'M DEVISING A NET TO PUT OVER THEM FOR THE NEXT PLANTING. SPINACH IS LOOKING GLORIOUS AND ACE JUST HELPED ME PLANT THE LAST OF THE CUCUMBER SEEDLINGS....AHHHHH GROW GARDEN GROW! X
