So this week is all about my booty.
No, not that booty.
Booty of the garden variety. As in lots of things my garden is producing right now. These pictures are from the last week or so, not just one day, but things are looking pretty good out there right now!
|CORN!! I've got corn! Someone said it looked like "professional" corn!|
|A few missing rows, but mostly not bad.|
|My sunflowers look great and then it's time for them to keel over so the seeds can form and dry. They look awful when they are keeling over. This was just before this one breathed it's last day of glory.|
|The main characteristic of the Secret Disaster Tomato is that it was once a Brandywine and therefore is more square and pink. See the bigger kind here? Those are my Secret Disasters. The little one is an organic Roma that is new to me this year.|
|I put this on in, because this is that zinnia that was destroyed by slugs. While her counterparts have all made taller stalks with one or two flowers, this little sucker bushed out and is blooming like you read about. Hmmm, maybe I should use my not so sciency brain and save the seeds from this one? But I'm not sure if that means the next generation would all be one color only. Yeah, I will have to save some!|
Sometimes, I think about what I think is fine to do in the garden, despite all of the "rules" that I read about, and I wonder if I am really D-U-M-B or if all of that writing is just the result of what some people experience some of the time. Like, I don't usually tell people what they HAVE to do in the garden because really, I break just about every rule and have decent results. Maybe it's magic. Maybe I'm on to something. Who knows.
But now I have a greenhouse to further my insane forays in the world of gardening and making my lists of dos and don'ts.
