As I have previously said….. I am easily excited.
Yesterday I had decided to pull the cucumber plants out of the garden. They looked a little sick and didn’t seem to be growing anything. I squealed with delight when I went to pull out a plant and I found this:
I told you I was easily excited! I quickly covered it back up, puffed out my chest and felt a little bit clever. As you can gather I am not a very experienced gardener. I’m learning as I go. However the tomatoes and beans seem to be going well – touch wood. We are getting plenty of beans but they never seem to make it to the kitchen. We eat them as we pick them! I am hoping I can make tomato chutney with my tomatoes this season.
And on a not so sucessful note. I pulled out the corn. It went all soggy! The chickens didn’t even want it!! And I am also not sure what is going on with the pumpkin and zucchini plants.
If anyone has any garden tips I would be grateful. Otherwise I will consult with Stephanie Alexander …… my gardening book.
