My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

7/31/18 Tuesday

Can't believe tomorrow is August. Even harder to believe that a lot of schools already started this week. What happened to summer vacation?
Got some potting soil mixed up

Potted up some Nero de Toscana kale seedlings. An Italian variety of "dinosaur" kale. 

Potted up my green cotton seedlings. I am really late with these but needed to get some more seed for them so hope they do ok. I was given my first seeds by a lady from Missouri. She said her father always grew it in the yard while they grew white cotton in the fields. 

I also made up some soil blocks and planted purple sprouting broccoli, a white and a purple cauliflower and some red cabbage. Hopefully fall will come on time and they will do well. 

This greenhouse is a crazy jungle. 

I did get some of the squash vines tied up so I can sort of walk in there. 

Got an oil change and tire rotation. Went to see mom and did the usual chores. My Filipino customer came and picked up 4 cockerels so that cleared out a pen. So tomorrow will be cleaning it out and moving birds around. Pretty sunset tonight tho no rain and a high at least 102.  Good night world.
