It's been a very slow week. We've had such lovely rain, that we only had to water 1 time this week. And my great helper took it upon himself to water what needed to be watered. His watering can is in TX, so we have to use what we can find.
He had so much fun that he watered some plants that didn't. All the same stuff is growing as last week. We did some weeding in between showers. The carrots are starting to get their real leaves and Matthew is refusing to thin at this time. The squash is steadfastly refusing to sprout. I have even planted more. I might order some more in case the seed is too old.
We started the great strawberry experiment again. We water from below and mist on top. I want to keep the varieties in their sections. I'm so protective of them, this pot is already packed in the car to head south tomorrow. I know, there's something wrong with me!
And the biggest news around here is that we've have hummingbirds! We saw them buzzing our iris and peonies Monday, and then when they were buzzing the red coleus at the end of the walk, we knew we needed to make sugar water pronto! So far, this is the best shot I've managed to get. I'm going to keep stalking them.
Hopefully the garden can take care of itself because we're going to be gone till next Thursday. Beach, here we come!
