It’s finally beginning to look a lot like a garden, or at least the makings of one. Now that that I’ve cleaned the slate, it’s time to roll up my sleeves and get down to the business of creating that twenty-five dollar victory garden I’ve been talking and writing so much about.
This video as usual provides the highs and lows (opportunities as I like to call them) of those unanticipated challenges. But that’s what I like about this series so much. Unlike most television shows that don’t let you see the “problems”, I’m making lemonade out of lemons. This time, the barely-used tiller decides to quit working, as you’ll see. But all in all, my garden will be better for it as I described in this video.
In real-time, it’s raining…again. The garden is almost completely planted. I’m saving a few patches to stage some plants to extend the harvest. But, that may not be a problem if we don’t get a bunch of sun in here soon to dry things out and give these plants a chance to photosynthesize. They’ve been planted now for two weeks and they look the same as they did in containers inside.
I’m catching up on my video backlog so I’d say by middle of next week, you’ll be watching episodes in real-time. I’m still encouraged but certainly frustrated with this very unusual and challenging weather we’re having.
