The hubs is out with the tractor as we speak, breaking ground on a new garden plot, we are just going to plant it with field peas this fall to get some nitrogen in the soil, come spring, I'm thinking a big corn patch.

Well, I looked at the drizzle, and then I put the remaining ferns out to get a little moisture. Sigh. Perhaps I can finish planting them tomorrow.

On the bright side, my lettuces and cabbage sprouted! I just need to figure out how to set the trap for the rabbit. It is one of those no-kill traps. Of course I went to the native plant sale today! Ugh I have no self control and a gigantic yard! I got a couple native trees for the other side of the property. UGH people NO self control. LOL I also got some berry bushes AND the virginia rose I have been DYING to get.

Ugh I need gardening friends. My neighborhood doesn't seem to have a gardening club, sooo...tempted to start. I got Korean takeout and am watching my current K-Drama whilst eating it. I put steak in my kimchi-chigae. Noice. I broke my diet seriously, and I also got a big slice of german chocolate cheescake. I wont eat all of it, but it probably has hmmm 2 days worth of calories...

So gardening guys and gals, I hope you guys have a lovely weekend. Kshegirl you are a yummy person. Decorating and gardening? Two things that make living beautiful.

Here's to everyone's having a lovely weekend full of a lot of happiness.

Lol, I cook, too!
Using a no-kill trap is pretty easy, the thing you have to do is just bait it correctly, and then check it frequently.
Where are you gonna rehome the bunny?

Someplace far away. I put tomatoes in it...I wasn't sure what to bait it with. It seems to like carolina phlox and baby blueberries. Sob but it's eaten those almost to nubs, so there's not much to put in the trap. You're right it was pretty easy to set. *fingers crossed*

What did you do in your garden today?
\
Not much to do, still waiting for my neighbor to come over and till it all under. Then wait for spring and start the process all over again. My wife did present me with three Crepe Myrtles' to plant.

Thrill of all thrills, next week I get to donate blood again, B+, I've been doing this, somewhat regularly, since 1967

Pulled out a few weeds & twisted the dried helenium stalks then bent heads down.

Pulled maple leaves out of my 'lady in black' aster.

^ Does anyone have this plant? I am completely smitten! Mine is 2 yrs old.

good for you guys, I know how much you need the rain. We have had solid rain, sometimes really heavy for a couple of days.

About an hour ago we had a break so I checked the okra. Sure enough 12 more, but I think we will be lucky to get one more bunch. I pulled the pepper plants out and one tomato plant. I do have lots of fair sized grape tomatoes, very green though. I will watch and see what happenes to them in a week or so.

I went out and bought a bag of bulb variety from Sam's, it's my first try so I am really excited about this. I have a big pot that I will put them in then cover it with some fall blooms, this I think will be my project for the week. Question, do I still water them in the winter?

Everything is very green out in my yard, can't get myself to pull out anything yet. I am attached to my plants I guess .

Transplanted a dozen yellow pear tomatoes, a dozen grape tomatoes, and 2 dozen romas.
Its very dry here, which is unusual for this time of year, looks like I am going to be doing a lot of drip irrigation this fall.
