No, I haven’t been binge drinking. These are the wine bottle ollas that are done for the season. I’ll clean them up and put them away for next spring.
Ever get into one of those kicks where you just start asking yourself why you’re hanging on to some old dying plants that aren’t going to produce and are just sucking up nutrients and space?
I had one of those this weekend and this morning.
So the last of the squash vines came out.
and the tomatillos…
We’re down to just the peppers (bell, jalepeno, and New Mexico), the watermelon of course (which are LOVING their unhindered environment), and the sweet potatoes who have laid claim to an entire corner of the garden and are trying to escape up the wall. The tired, dead looking tomato plant in the picture used to be part of a tomato jungle, but as you can see the sweet potatoes have made their claim to the whole area. For a first time experiment, they’re looking pretty good!
On the surface anyway, we’ll see what the tubers look like in another month or two.
All that demo has me in the mood for… some planting. I think I need to work out my seed block recipe and get going on that tonight. 🙂
Always something to do in the garden.
