Mistress Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With cockle-shells, and silver bells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
I was able to go play in the dirt after the rains left late yesterday afternoon. Yes, it was a little bit muddy. But plants don't seem to mind the mud. I planted more of the hot peppers, and some patty pan squash. I wanted to rototill in between the rows but the tiller got a flat. I had to put in a call to Big Little Brother to see if he could stop by to fix it. Reckon that means until he does, I get to use the old hoe!
I had put my white half runner beans to soaking early this morning. After it got nice and warm, got two more rows planted. I added a row of Nasturiums below the tomato plants. They are good companion plants to help keep the bugs off of them. Or so Momma says. We'll see.
I did pick several peppers last night. A yellow banana, cayenne and a jalepeno pepper. Had them for supper. And again for lunch today. UMMM! The cayenne and jalepeno had just the right amount of bite. My lips burnt for several minutes after I finished eating.
I can hardly wait till the tomato and squash start coming in. And the green beans...
But right now, I've got to leave for work. It's donut making time.
And so it goes......
