Garden Update

I was busy putting up the fence in the last two weeks and didn’t have much time to care for the garden but it’s thriving. The wooden fence posts are up, the garden gate is up, but obviously not protecting the garden from my visitors out there.

It has been raining so much in the last two weeks that I thought the garden would drown, and not to mention it was difficult putting down the fence posts since the holes were filled with the rain water. We rented the hole digger and was able to dig the holes for the garden posts and also the posts for the chicken/duck fencing. By the time we finished digging 64 holes I barely could walk and we had to return it the next day since it was a 24-hour rental.

The cucumber trellis is a simple 2 piece 8-foot panels zip tie together and stake the ends down with yellow tent stakes.

The cucumber plants look yellow, I think we had too much rain.

I’m glad that the garden is sloped, otherwise the whole garden would be flooded.

The two rows blue lake bush beans are doing well, and the okras at the end are coming up.

The lemongrass is thriving also.

I think it will make it, I see a few inches of growth at the tips.

The snow peas are taking off, and they also have a trellis to climb.

The Mountain Laurel bloomed last week, by the time I get around to take the picture it has wilted and not as pretty as the first bloom.

Same with the rhododendrons, the rains made it wilted but I think it still looks pretty.

Hope my next update the garden fence will be up.
