I got home from work today, popped open a bud light lime and sat on the couch for a moment then thought- “Oh shit, the garden!”
I learned from last year NOT to ignore it -or else!”
I went up there and was glad I got my ass off the couch. I tied up the tomatoes with hemp twine- not plastic stretchy stuff. Decided to stop consuming plastic when possible.
I got halfway through the row and took this picture. SO MANY FLOWERS translates into- hundreds of pounds of organic tomatoes.
Realized my lawn clipping mulch is as good for my knees as it is for the plants. I was extremely comfortable scooting along on this mat of dried stuff. Def a great thing to do.
Started raining so I’m outta there but took this pic of the rows I did not have enough clippings for
Many dead and unhappy cabbages. I wouldn’t want to scoot along that path either. No mulch = no good.
Extreme happiness=extreme growth
Had my pandora station in my earbuds whilst up there in the garden when this song came on. Not bad!
