I am finally starting to get caught up with my garden. Well, it is more like my garden is finally starting to slow down. The end of the growing season is rapidly approaching and it is very bitter-sweet. Gardening is meditation for me. I spend hours upon hours lost in thought in my veggie paradise.
I still have a few spring crops to replant, and many of my veggies are still going strong, but I can tell the end is near. This past weekend I ripped out my dead sunflowers and corn stalks, as well as a row of beans. I FINALLY got my broccoli to sprout and my peas have emerged from the ground. Limas are about ready to be picked, and I think I may have seen the last of my zucchini, YAY! I picked most of my butternut squash tonight, and have about 75% of the weeding done. I should have everything up to par for pictures in the next few days!
Tonight I had a new experience that I would like to share with you. A slug somehow managed to move, at lightning speed, and wedged it’s self between my garden flip-flop and my bare heel. As soon as my foot made contact, grossness ensued! That was my que to call it a night!
