Remember when I said that you have to have homemade or, like, five bags of different composts in your raised beds? Well, I know, because this year I didn’t do it! I have NEVER had to fertilize my garden or anything else I’ve grown. But I got lazy. I put in a bunch of new beds and mixed a bunch of crap dirt in there. Here’s the spinach I planted in February.
And here’s the tomatoes I transplanted six weeks ago. They look the same as the day I put them out.
And then, of course, there’s this happy plant, that is supposed to be collards, but isn’t quite what was advertised on the package. Know any prickly leaved collards?
So here’s where I stand…
I’ve ripped out everything but the zucchini, tomatoes, beans, and peppers. Now, truth be known, there is still plenty of fun stuff to transplant at the store, but since I’ve already busted my yard budget four times over (remember the expensive goats?) I am stuck with my seed stash, that I thankfully stored correctly.
