El Jardin

The garden, after much worrying about mice and storms and, yeah, all that, has been producing more than enough for us to share! Tomatoes-both cherry and Roma, green and yellow squash, green beans, cucumbers, even pumpkins!! We managed one ear of corn (so sweet) before the worms got the rest.

We have been lucky this year with cooler temps and lots of rain (for here)…now that we are in the middle of August–hi temps and no rain has returned. Our water consumption will go up. Last month we were watering about 15 gallons every third day…now it’s 25+ every to every other day. Great reason to get more water collection online!!

Beginning plans for some winter gardens…sunken green houses…my goal is to have tomatoes year round!
