Radishes!!!!!!!!!!

Just a quick note , I pulled all the radishes in one of the tubs. They were getting ready to bolt . Some were not forming a round radish but I did get a small bowl full. The tub also has New Zealand  spinach , that is supposed to do well in the heat. This will give them more sunlight, so they should start to do better. Here are the pix from the radishes.

Well it is not much but our weather here has been up and down, and got real warm real fast.

PLANTED THE GROW BEDS THIS WEEKEND

Yes I finally got to planting the beds with the seedlings that I started. I now have celery , Basil, two varieties of tomato, cucumbers, onions and rosemary sprigs I am rooting close to the tomatoes to help with pest control. I also have three cuttings from my raspberry bush that I am rooting. They became casualties of a over exuberant dog behind us. She chewed them off the fence. Now I wish I had the bushes with the thorns ,..not really.

So without further ado the pictures…….

IMG_0068Put the celery in soda bottle to keep them in a bunch instead of spreading out like they were. Have a small aphid and little white bug problem. Have tried spraying with water,. Going to place some yellow Solo cups with oil on them to try to draw the aphids off. Also going to mix up some pepper and soap spray.

Ok here is part of the reason it took me so long to update this blog. We got a rescue dog from the no kill shelter. She is a Lab Springer Spaniel mix. Her name is Maggie and she is 2 1/2 months old. Going to be a big dog . So I have been doing potting training duty. She is a good dog , but you know how puppies are .

Well thats it for now will keep this posted as often as I can.

Did You Think I Died?

No didn’t die but damn close. I got a case of the flu and a stomach bug all at once. No I didn’t get the flu shot wont get on that soap box though. Any way got over most of that and then my mother went back in for surgery and started PT . Today was the first day that I felt like or was able to get out into the green house.

So out I went with my seed packs and got everything started I waned too.I have not added the Blue gill yet . Decided to get more plants growing in the grow beds first. My water test today were perfect so what I have right now is a good balance. I will add the blue gill once my plants are in the grow beds . When there is a need for more nutrients.

So here are the photos from today .
