Gardening 365, Day 164.
Its turning around. Probably turning the outside temps UP to 100 but hey, its not raining!The rain wasn’t bothering me as much as the cool cool temps, which were creating a “failure to thrive” situation in our garden. Upper 70′s all week, save Wednesday when we get a cold front through here.
Garden inhabitants,here are your assignments should you choose to accept them:
Berries: ripen up!
Pole Beans: grow up.
Tomatoes: stand up and fruit up.
Apricot tree: Liven up (dammit!)
Artichokes, wake up and straighten up.
That fancy pot of basil is already trying to set flowers. Off with their heads! Everyone else got a good talking to today. Encouragement, and support are in place (tomato cages and stakes).
And, while this has nothing to do with the fruit and veggies, we are, finally, 6 weeks later than usual, filling and opening the fabulous Lily Pond.
Let summer begin at Ranch du Bois.
