I made it out to the garden to drop off the Weed Barrier in the shed.
***Note*** It has a 5 year guarantee. I had originally requested for the 20 year guarantee brand, but it was out of stock — someone may want to look for a garden centre that carries the 20 year guarantee brand. I think that would be a wise move. I think the compost pit should be lined with 20 year material. 5 year material is not worth the effort…..I think the year brand can be used effectively on other aspects of the garden, just not the compost pit…
The garden is at its most charming in many ways. The native flowers are out and in full bloom (I’m kicking myself for not bringing my camera…)
The squash leaves are huge!
I tried pinching some suckers but had trouble distinguishing which stems to pinch off.
Often I was faced with the choice of pinching off the strong stem with leaves to one side or the weaker stem with buds (which will develop into flowers and hense tomatoes) in the middle.
I think pinching off suckers should instead be called thinning the tomaetoe plant. This makes a lot more sense.
I didn’t water – someone needs to do that….
