Today I actually welcomed the light rain we have been having for two reasons. 1- I can't think of anything better to feed the newly planted garden. 2- I am spending the evening indoors, which allows me this opportunity to update everyone on what has been happening at Girasole Farm.
The orchard is coming along fine, except for the curly leaf on the nectarine trees. I still have yet to learn to control it. I'll spare you the pictures. It's just too painful to look at.
WE HAVE SIGNS OF GROWTH...............
A little help from the lady bugs. Oh Lady Bug, Lady Bug, do not fly away home. Please stay and care for the trees. I promise your house is not on fire and your children are fine.
We have a life line of water to all the trees. Whew-A life saver to me too.
The Garden has been planted. It starts looking something like this:
Then looks like this:
Tomatoes & Peppers
Everything else is planted from seed.
We have planted watermelon, cantaloupe, butter nut squash, Isley peppers, jalapeno peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, corn, carrots and radishes. (I have another garden for my herbs)
The Spirea bloomed beautiful this year. (so did the grand-baby Laci)
Isn't that the most beautiful
My birds are happy in the trees too.
Ok I am sure you've had enough. Time to get back to the garden.
Guess it's over now.
BYE until next time.
