Garden Update: Planting Vegetables

The turning, tilling, weeding, and making of rows is finished. Now it’s time to lant the garden and get the vegetables into the ground. The shade provided from the Tree of Heaven is relieving. I find it hard to get up from my lawn chair at times, so comfortable and enjoyable to watch the balloons flying overhead. I work up quite an appetite though and go through water like a hydroelectric dam. My body craves salt and I drink Gatorade to replenish electrolytes. Nibbling on the wild edibles that grow near the garden’s edge helps keep me going too; mustard, clover, lemon wood sorrel, cleavers and wild violets. Just having some fun and trying to show a different perspective on gardening. Gardening is hard, but rewarding work. I enjoy getting my hands dirty and seeing the fruits of my labor come to form. Just because the work is hard doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun doing it. Laughing and making fun is what keeps me motivated.

Using Cinder Blocks to Grow Beans: Growing and Harvesting

Started with 10 seeds and it multiplied to many! Very simple way to grow beans and as always, harvesting what I grow is fun! As a container, I used cinder blocks, added a mixture of top soil and organic compost, water them, then watch them grow! From purple flowers to green small pods that eventually transformed into beautiful yellow bean pods! The harvesting video was made 6 days ago and today I made my second harvest! I absolutely love it!
