Where’s the Rain

We’ve not had any rain in over two weeks.  I had to give the garden a good soaking Thursday.  While I was doing that I finally set out the yellow squash plants I’ve had for a wk. or more. (So lazy) Two of the volunteer squash plants have zucchini growing on them, but the vegetables are growing in a ball form.  The plants are blooming constantly; four or five blooms per plant.

I am hoping that this good soaking will help the green beans to start blooming. 

Here’s another pic of my “gee I’m so proud” potato plants.

  1. Really great garden, I’ve been experimenting with the distance between each plant. So far I’m finding that if I plant a little closer than the seed package says to, maybe half the distance, it helps keep the grass and weeds down. That makes it a lot less work during the growing season. I picked up the idea from Square Foot Gardening, figured if it worked there why not here.

    • I can understand your grass problem. Right now there is grass growing between my onions. Each set is about 5″ apart and I don’t want to hoe them because I’m afraid of cutting the onions. I’m not one to get down on my knees and pull. I used to do that as a teenager and well, not now. :O) Good luck with your gardening!
