then the storms came.
my marglobe tomato plant broke near the base of the stalk. i stuck the broken part into the ground because it has a ton of blossoms and then i staked that part. the other part i left in the ground and today i noticed that it is putting out new shoots. hopefully, both parts will live. but i don't think i'll go around and whack all the plants in half.
i am planting herbs next week-end and have to decide which 9 herbs to plant. so far, i am thinking:
- basil- maybe a few different varieties
my granddaughter is planting her watermelons again, and her brother will plant the cantaloupe seeds. they are eager farmers. i just give them a tablespoon and the seeds. last year we had quite a watermelon patch. the funny thing is, she HATES watermelon! she just likes growing them.
i also planted morning glory
and moon flower vines.
i had sprouted them from seed and hopefully they are hardy enough to grow outside. i love moonflowers, they bloom at night when it's really hot and they smell wonderful!
when my own garden has grown out a bit, i will post photos of my actual garden.
but you get the gist.
