Gardening In West Texas Week 6!
Wow I can't believe it is week 6 already, and yes yes I did miss last weeks post :p. So much went on over this week while we were on spring break! Lots of tilling and cleaning, mostly cleaning. We hit 90 degrees already this past week which really scares for the summer heat! I'll explain the garden as we go through the pictures :)
|I took this old can holder from cleaning my pantry and made it into a plant holder! |
My spices will be going here. I am fixing to to plant everything from Rosemary which
I hear is great for memory to Oregano which every good Italian needs!
|My oldest wanted to turn the compost ;) yep not as easy as he thought!|
|My sad little tomatoes are excited to be outside! However they are lacking so much :( 'll explain below!|
|12 cute little cucumber plants :') and 3 lonely tomatoes I decided to try and turn the chicken coup from |
last summer into a great cucumber climber!
Now I have been asked many time isn't it early?? Well yes according to all the books it really is to early to plant. However I have always started on schedule and things have not gone well because the heat. Turns out my early planting is likely causing the purple tone in my tomatoes. Luckily I have a great friend over at My Side Of Life helping me fix my problems. Read HERE how to fix your purple tomato seedlings. I'm sure I cannot be alone in this issue!
