The post where I'm a fraud

I did manage to get out and weed after these picture were taken, but honestly, it's so bad that all I could do before my back gave out was clear out around the each of the plants. Some gardener I am ;)

What I've been up to (w/pictures)

I got more work in the garden done on Mother's Day. We went out looking for tomato plants but no one (really, no one) had any roma or cherry varieties. So I got seeds and direct sowed those. No growth yet (5 days later), but I'm holding out…

Open for gardening

I managed to get into the garden today. Work and the weather and the kids all lined up to let me get something done. Massive weeding (at least 3 hours worth), got the trellis for the peas up, and built up the tater mounds. All the seedlings…

Garden of Mess

Ah, kids. I love em. They bring me more joy then anything else. But sometimes, they make me go :rant :hide :help :cry :shake :eyeroll :censored The younger boys (almost 5 and almost 3) were doing more then playing out back the other…

Today

So I haven't done, uh, anything in the garden, really since I last posted. But things are still happening. We have 6 potatoes already coming up, I was very surprised to see them already. Lots and lots of peas and I think this weekend we'll…

Things are happening, a tiny bit at a time

Transplanting and I are not best of friends. I'm bad about properly hardening off. I can tell anyone how to do it, but when it comes down to it myself, I forget. Both to put them outside, and to remember to bring them in at the proper time for…

What is this plant?

I know I haven't had many readers lately mostly due to Blotanical's (really Google's) feed problem. Hopefully it's fixed and this is picked up and displayed! This weird yellow fruit is getting huge, please help me identify it :treehugger http://www.garden-of-eatin.com/2008/09/11/identify-this-pumpkin/

Identify this pumpkin!

I planted 2 kids of pumpkins, both Burpee, one is a "Prizewinner Hybrid" and the other 2 plants are supposed to be "Jack O Lantern". There's 2 plants, both supposed to be Jack O Lantern, planted inches from each other (both were coming in…

Painfully obvious lessons

More lessons, con't from this post... Tomato cages. Just suck it up and buy them. Stakes do no good when they have 6 "main" stalks coming up from the ground! It's like trying to stop a monkey from flinging poo. Or trying to contain a 2 year…

Don't eat the apple in the Garden of Eatin'

Bad stuff'll happen....weeds will take over so badly you can't catch up and all you can hope for it to clear little areas around the still producing plants so they aren't choked out. Tomatoes will grow so insanely big they'll all fall over and…

General growy-ness

Just a general update on how things are going in the Garden of Eatin' today. The weeds are taking over. I need to get out there and attack with the weed whacker, it's that bad. It's not stopping things from growing, so that much is good!…

It's the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Or, it will be! I sure wish I could watch this little guy grow up. Then Now: I love squash flowers!
