It was a very stormy day! Man....The 80 mph winds that came thru Tupelo, Mississippi thankfully diminished before reaching my town. Whew....No damage to the garden - other than one of my owls being blown off of it's perch. I did collect around 20 gallons of rainwater, though.
Anyway, it should be a very productive weekend, and the carrots will finally be harvested. The compost needs to be turned over, lots of weedeating needs to be done, and the shed will be worked on, as well. If I can think of it, i'll change the oil in my truck, too. Gosh...there's so much to do around here every weekend! But, I do like staying busy!
Oh...i'll take pictures, for sure! You've got to see the corn......A few stalks are 6 feet tall (measured from the base to tassel). And what's so cool about it, is several of the stalks have 2 ears forming. I may end up with more corn than I know what to do with, especially since there are around 45 stalks. It shouldn't be too difficult to give away "peaches and cream" sweet corn, though.
Remember the butternut squash in the 18 gallon swc? Well....the excessive rainfall over the past few weeks has made it almost die. Since several tomato suckers were rooted a week or so ago, I have a good mind to plant a couple of them in their place.....decisions, decisions.....
Take care, and happy gardening!
