Keeps getting powdery mildew so hack the leaves off
I got more big blue pots and just got most of the planted. I put 3 blueberries plants in some of them. I got a bunch of smaller pots too, need more potting soil.
I planted in my back yard, for the first time, Tahitian squash on 5-9-14. They look much like butternut squash, except that they are touted to store longer (>9 months in a cool dry place, not refrigerated). If one cannot use it all at one meal, just slice off what you want and the rest self seals over due to the high sugar content. The texture is said to be like spaghetti squash. My wife and I will try these this winter.
You should wait til the 25th to have them come and plant a bunch of above ground growers the 20th or 21st to show them how quickly things grow at the right moon cycle. The next new moon is the 24th.
Got more beans & an other cuc a few mins ago, Finishing up the watering with my trickle. A couple of old fellows were checking out the electrical to my old pump hoping that would fix it but it still is old and no good. They did repair some of the electrical issues with it. One of the other guys here brought home a 5 hp pump he scored for me but it is too big. Jim will probably buy it and I will put the money toward a new one.
Yes, time and energy, it is gold. I long for the days when I could work hard all day , then get up the next and do it all again.
It takes a couple of days to recover from a big day in the garden now. I am opening my garden to a garden club group this coming Monday. Theres not lot to see really, but then all gardens are at the same stage in the season and gardeners understand this.
Getting cucumbers now probably not letting them get big enough. The bees were working the cuc vines like crazy the other day. And the garlic chive blooms they love them. Getting 2-3 zuc a day they have powdery mildew already and I haven't over head watered them at all. We did have that nasty wind storm and they are at the end of the house with the trailer right by which may not give them good air flow. Grape toms ripening slow getting a few of them.
Keryn I was thinking all along that you were going into winter but you are just starting your growing season now. I wish I had a greenhouse in right now but that probably won't happen this year either. It is getting cooler here at night now. GRRRR! So much to do and not enough time or energy. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!
You have done well Vicky to get a good crop growing at all, this year. Well done.
Got my seeds in, and they are just coming up, I love my shade house. Had some warm windy days and the soil stayed damp under the shade cloth. Looking forward to a good growing season. I will change where I planted things from last year. I had most of the garden planted already when we put the shade house up last year, just before the heat came.
Woooo HOOOO just counted 10 bees on the garlic chive blooms. I had only seen one since I moved here in May. Still getting zuc on our two plants. The basil started to grow after it cooled off a bit but then it warmed up again the past few days. I planted by the new moon and 3 days later we have babies, c.beets, lettuce, spinach etc.
Other stuff growing in the boxes.
