Gardening in West Texas-Week 2
Wow I can hardly believe it is the second post already for the season :) My little seedlings are going in full force and the sun is out and shining. It was nearly 70 degrees here yesterday and if the wind would stop it would be perfect! If you have ever been here to West Texas though you would know this time of year that isn't going to happen.lol I questioned myself a lot this week if starting a garden early was a great idea, but as it gets warmer and warmer I know that it was a good plan. Here is what the garden is looking like right now!
|I am sad to see the geese leaving but that means the time is right for planting :)|
|The darn crabgrass is back! I have about 1/3 of the garden cleared and tilled :)|
|Not the best picture but here are the tomato plants I think it is about time to thin them!|
|The garlic is up and having a mind of its own! Good thing I like garlic I could 30 plants so far.lol|
|Cucumbers and Tomatoes going strong! I think a bit of lettuce is poking through to say hi to.|
|FLOWERS! My little bees will be so happy I can't wait to see all the color in the garden this year.|
|COMPOST! Isn't my husband so creative.lol It is almost ready to spread.|
I better finish getting that crabgrass out.
As you can see we are making a lot of progress but there is a long ways to go! The plants won't go outside for at least another month, and I hope we will have all the dirt tilled and the compost spread by then. Perhaps I am simple minded but watching plants grow really just brings me peace. Are you growing anything this year??
