The Garden

9 Jun

I managed to get my garden cleaned off during the last two weekends, and my uncle came with his little green tractor on Monday.

At 95, I keep wondering how many more years he’s going to be doing this for me.  He keeps doing a better job each year.

It was ready to plant, but I just couldn’t get it done with Harley and her babies and also still working.

I finally finished teaching for the year on Thursday, and I spent Friday and Saturday getting it planted.

I think I have everything planted due to my mom’s excellent assistance.  It was her job to sit in the house with Sky so I could actually do something out there.

Sky

Because it’s so late, I planted more plants than seeds.  Because of Sky, I even put cages around the squash.  I’m going to pretend it will help keep him from pulling the plants out.

It hasn’t worked so far, so I think I’m going to try to throw some cattle panels around the garden to keep him out.

Now we just need some rain.  I swear we’ve had lots of thunder and lightning and some wind, but very little rain.

Storm that gave lots of thunder, lightning, wind and about 1/10 of an inch of rain earlier in the week.

I’m hoping we get a good rain tonight.

    We finally got some rain! With what we got yesterday and overnight, plus during the day today (Saturday) we got nearly an inch! So neat!

    I hope your garden does well! – and that you can keep Sky out of it.

    I think the cattle panels are a good idea, otherwise your garden is unlikely to see the end of June intact! Sky is a goofy dog, with a bit of a vegetable obsession!
