Planting

10 Jun

I have to say that I am really lucky to be where I’m at.  We’re wet.  Planting has been a struggle, but we haven’t had any of the devastating floods they have all around us.  Finally, last Monday, I looked into the field and saw tracks.  They managed to get in and plant.  It was obviously still too wet, but it is done.

I noticed those tracks when I was up checking out the garden.  It was tilled Monday evening!  Seriously, this is the first it’s been dry enough to till.

I brought my gardening stuff up there and the planting began on Tuesday!

I am so glad we put the hydrant in, so I have water right there and don’t have to carry it like the last time I had a garden up here.

It’s still a work in progress because of work, goats, heat, and such, but I’m getting there.  So far the deer have only sampled one cherry tomato (pulled it right out of the ground and left it to die).

I was worse than the deer because I didn’t make it up there to water the ones still waiting to be put in the ground.  Unfortunately, I lost a few plants. It will all be good though.

It should be completely planted in the next day or so.  I also got a few strawberry plants to put in pots.  Sadly, they were neglected too.

I put them in the sink and poured water on them every time I walked past, and they seem to have made a pretty amazing recovery!

Now I need to get them in pots too.
