We had such a lovely rain last night. I live in the desert now and have come to appreciate when we have a nice rain shower. This morning the garden is so much improved from the overnight watering it recieved. I told my daughter that it seems like God has some sort of Miracle Grow in the rain He sends, because the plants respond so much better to rain than they do to the water hose.
Always looking forward, I am beginning to take notes on things to do in next years garden. I would forget my own name if I didn’t have it written down, note taking is something that I must do for almost everything.
Next year I will not plant so many squash plants, we have more than we are eating. I will also plant them where they are more easily tended. I put the near a fence this year, now I am having difficultly searching out squash bugs because I can’t get to the back side of the plants. Next year, they go out toward the middle of the garden.
The tomato plants are finally big enough to get some blossoms, but no tomatos yet. I started the seeds in the ground, it has been slow growing this year. Next year I will try starting the tomato plants indoors, maybe I will get tomatos earlier.
Also, next year I will get some NoLo Grasshopper bait. NoLo bait works so well in controlling grasshoppers without poision. I have used it before but waited to late to use it this year. If I had taken notes and read them last year I would have remembered to get some bait!!
On a bad note, I got bitten by a harvest ant on my toe yesterday. How many ways can you say, "It hurts!" My foot is nicely swollen and itchy this morning. Robert says that I am allergic to the bites, I am beginning to think he might be right.
Hope you all have a perfectly, perfect day.
Thanks for stopping by.
