Gardening in West Texas That is What I Get
My oh my what a gardening day. I got up and out in the garden by 8 in the morning. Everyone is growing so well! My tomatoes though were getting a bit over grown. My friend over at My Side of Life told me they needed two feet of space a piece and while I couldn't listen to that point(I gave my just over a foot between them) some of them had to be moved. So I got to digging and transplanting, when I reach a hard piece of ground I got my spade out and started hacking at the ground............guess I should have moved a nearby pot......because as I was trying to transplant and dig I hit the corner. At this point I don't think it is broken enough to go in but I messed something up good :p . Here are some pictures for the garden this week.
Now to start preparing these plants for vacation! I bought some little watering stakes that attach to two liter bottles hopefully it will be enough for them to survive. How does your garden grow?
|Beautiful clouds before our evening storm, you |
can see how big the sunflower is getting!
|Mmmmm....I love basil, it is the only herb I have gotten going.|
|Strawberries are still alive and finally starting|
to grow after being in the ground for a week.
|Some kind of bean, it isn't looking like the bean I put in the ground.lol|
|Look how big the mystery plant is getting! I'm thinking |
it is a large pumpkin plant.
|Pickling cucumbers, okra and corn growing strong!|
