|Decor pumpkins (mini pumpkins)|
I think I will have to let them grow over onto the cement. Maybe I can lay some burlap down or something to keep them from getting burned. I had quite a bit of a caterpillar problem for a couple weeks. Every morning I went out and picked off all the caterpillars I could find.
|the most I found in one morning- 5 caterpillars|
Today I added some bat guano to the soil around the pumpkins and squash.
I also ordered a huge bag of fertilizer pellets from Azure standard. I'm not sure which fertilizer I will use for the rest of the soil. I would like to fertilize it this weekend though, and possibly plant a few more things as well. I received my seeds in the mail a week or so ago. I was so excited!
Carrots- Danvers 126, Cosmic purple
Onion- Stuttgarter, Yellow of Parma
Swiss Chard- Rainbow
Lettuce- Crisp Mint, Outregeous
Cabbage- Early Flat Dutch
Broccoli- De Cicco
I also have some heirloom radish seeds and a head of garlic for planting. I realized one thing I completely forgot about planting this fall is spinach! How I could forget about that I have no idea. We eat that green more than any other in this house! Oh well, I may order some, I may not. I haven't decided yet. I don't want to overwhelm myself.
I've got my garden planner all set up and organised with what to plant where. I hope I haven't bit off more than I can chew! I've already decided I am going to blog less so I can spend more time with my kids. When business gets busy (which it always comes in waves for some reason), I won't be posting much. I've also been doing a little preschool
