Doing a quick catch-up on the Blog tonight.
Monday after work (evening) I tilled the garden with my new mini tiller and it did a GREAT job. I think I have a handle on how to use it now. “Practice makes perfect” as they say.
After tilling around the vegetables I tilled a large empty section; getting it ready to plant the corn and green beans. There’s a few patches of Bermuda grass so I really dug into that to get rid of it.
On Tuesday I used the leaf rake to gather up the loose dried Bemuda grass that was on top of the ground. I used my Dad’s planter and planted 5 rows of Blue Lake green beans and 4 rows of Peaches and Cream corn. I gave the seeds some City water, but I really wish it would rain on them.
This evening I sprinkled the corn and bean seeds with 10-20-10 fertilizer and gave them a good drink of City water. To encourage the carrots I sprinkled them also and gave them a good drink. Ah..fingers still crossed that they’ll come up.
