We are looking pretty good in most of the garden. The green beans are about to put out their runners up the post. The sunflowers, corn and squash are coming right along too. I even have basil and more green beans sprouting up from my second planting.
I bought a new addition that I hope does well: two watermelon plants (above is one). They are called a bush sugar baby. They don’t sprawl out like a normal watermelon plant. I haven’t grown watermelon since I was a kid in 4-H so I’m really excited.
I haven’t been able to get anything to sprout in my tanks. These guys are so thick, I think they may be munching the seeds before they sprout. I know they usually eat decomposing wood, but it’s the only possibility I can find. I’m looking into natural methods of removal. I may have to just let the tanks rest and the bugs disperse before I can use them. I definitely will pay closer attention to bugs in my materials next time.
I hope y’all’s gardens are coming along too. We got a nice rain yesterday so at least I won’t have to water.
