I’ve been putting a lot of time into music and horses, and neglecting my garden, and also neglecting my garden blog! But I’m back with some stuff to report. First, after the semester started and I basically didn’t have time for gardening, David took up a lot of slack. When the road crews came along to trim trees and left a big pile of wood chips near our house, he picked it up and put it on the southside path to keep the weeds from taking it over.
He also has been doing a lot of work in the vegetable garden. He bought a small plastic greenhouse to lengthen the season:And he has put a lot of composted horse manure and old hay down as patches of plants such as our sweet potatoes are harvested.
We did not grow tomatoes, but we bought some from a local farm, and made lots of tomato sauce. We froze it, after adding our own herbs, garlic, onions, peppers, and other veggies.
