Carolyn came over today to help me again. We tried to check the oil in the 4-wheeler but there seems to be fuel in the oil, so we just worked with buckets today. We got up to the flowerbed and stopped. This week I will pull out the flowers and the row will be ready!
I pulled the cloth over the peas up and plan to do a little weeding, reseeding in a bare spot and plant some Morning Glory seeds in the row to climb up with the peas. I don't know if they will germinate and grow here, I have never tried to grow them outside. I have had them inside before and they are so pretty.
The weather wasn't too bad today. I hope it holds for the rest of the week!
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
