Garden Update


The garden, after a lot of dilly-dallying around, has finally started to take off....all at once.

The weeds have been worse than I remember them ever being at the old house. it must be because its the first year...or maybe because of how much uncultivated area there is around my house...or both. I finally got exhausted from pulling weeds and laid ground fabric everywhere that wasn't a growing place.


My mixed greens are more than ready to eat - I harvested a bunch but since haven't been able to get through those, I haven't taken the rest.


My Zucchini are getting big and are flowering nicely.


My sad little eggplant bush is being choked out by some very aggressive Tomatoes...but still managed to produce this one eggplant-in-the-making.


And finally - the coop is half done. The sawhorses are stored inside it for now - but won't be a permanent fixture. If you look closely you can see the little chicken door framed in on the left.
