Garden Update

The garlic is about ready to harvest as I've cut off any watering for a few days, the potatoes either have flowered and are dying or are still flowering, and the store bought tomatoes have doubled in size this last week. The asparagus is growing well and the onions are getting huge. I normally try to stay organic but used my leftover Miracle Gro for Tomatoes on the Bird Girls to try to get them going. I think the prolonged cold put a hurting on them. My herb box is filling in and the flowers are attracting bees a plenty especially one pesky Carpenter Bee that I tried to photograph unsuccessfully for 30 minutes or so. The bell peppers are starting to do well as are the bush beans. Mywatermelon plants are not doing so well. No growth at all. Need more heat.

  1. My garlic has stopped growing but I'm not happpy with the size of the bulbs. Pulled a couple up yesterday to see where they were and they're just too tiny, going to leave them in a couple more weeks and hope they catch a second wind. Thanks for the updates, I'll be curious to see how your potatos yeild.

  4. 90% of the Bird Girls are responding wonderfully to the warmer weather and the chemical infusion. Going to add some organic seaweed fertilizer tonight and we should be off to the races.
