Gardening In West Texas-Thank God For The Rain!
Yep you read right we got a little bit of rain! The last 3 days have been simply beautiful here in West Texas. Lots of clouds and even a small shower. Yep for once we got a day time shower, no lightening and winds just some nice sky water. This week we did some MASSIVE work in the garden. Most everything is planted and I couldn't be more thrilled. All that needs to be planted this coming Mother's Day weekend is some regular cucumbers, watermelons and some more beans! I have decided to read up more of survival gardening and how to maximize everything, plus I wanted to reuse some of the stuff that was headed for the trash can here. So here are some great pictures for the week with some words about each :)
|One of my new dove friends :) they are two small babies who love the garden|
|My little corn :) planting in the ground seems to be much better for us!|
|My happy little tomatoes :) this is what is under all those water bottles!|
|The start of my herb garden! AKA the doves favorite place to sit.lol|
|My far row so far I hope to fit another wide row and one narrow row!|
This is corn, okra and pickling cucumbers!
|Middle row is FULL corn, sunflowers, peas, radishes,carrots, bell peppers |
and something else I wrote down but can't remember right now :p
|The white pieces are a drawer set up!! They will be used to support my |
tomatoes as they grow big and strong. While little I can cover to provide shade
from the West Texas sun!
|FINALLY OPEN BLACKBERRY FLOWERS!|
|Some new flowers to attract more bees! Big problem here is a shortage of bees :(|
