Well. It’s fall. And we are having a long dry spell, which means that my seeds and seedlings need a great deal of attention. It’s not light late any more, so I can’t really get to the garden on weekdays, unless I go before dinner, which I did tonight. That could be a strategy.
Luckily, my gardening neighbor, Mike, has offered to keep things watered. I did some work a couple weeks ago to fence the things I had under cover. They had grown up through the openings in the chicken wire and the rabbits were eating the parts that stuck out. Evil lagomorphs.
I have lots of arugula, which the rabbits don’t care for (heh, heh).
And I am finally getting some eggplants!!!! I have plans for them, the eggplants. Plans that include tomatoes, couscous and chickpeas…
Writing this, I realized that there were two okra pods either lurking in or being abused by my purse. Just grabbed them out and rinsed them. The okra is being brave and persistent, but I can tell it’s tired. I’m saving pods as I get them at the moment.
We had a garden work day last weekend, and Betsy, whose plot was run over by the bus last month, had help rebuilding her beds. I hope you have a great week and weekend!
