Worked alone today. Pulled out some zucchini plants and pruned the powdery mildewed leaves. Harvested 7 pumpkins! Imagine that! And I didn't even plant them. Some seeds must have come in with my organic soil order. Pruned the dead tomato leaves and tied up some vines that fell over.

The vetch arrived so I plan to mix in all the compost in the next couple of weeks and plant the vetch wherever I can. Also have to get in the winter crops. I hope to plant onions, garlic, kale, Swiss chard, bok choy, arugula, lettuce, carrots, beets, turnips and parsnips. Maybe kohlrabi. I don't even know what to do with it, but I guess I can find out. It's supposed to grow well in the fall and winter.

  1. I read your post and it reminded me of my grandmother. She was always out in her garden. I think that it was therapeutic for her. I hope that you get all of your planting done. :)
