I’d like to ask you to please lift up my city in prayer. We’ve had a lot of rain these past couple of weeks with more in the forecast. The river banks are swollen and parts of our town is starting to flood. My home church has lost power this morning and it’s basement, where the children’s classes are held, is flooded. I just pray that the rain would subside and that people will not be left in ruin as in years past.
As for my gardening, I am really pleased with how this season is going so far. What’s been great is that I’ve been saving quite a bit of money in groceries. I’ve only had to buy a few items at the farmers market as I’ve been harvesting a steady supply of lettuce, green onions, radishes, and as of yesterday peas and chinese kale. Having raised beds for my Spring planting has made a huge difference in production and the home made compost has encouraged growth. One thing I have noticed is that the trees in my parent’s home are overgrown and casting a bit too much shade. I feel if they had more hours of direct sun my veggies would mature quicker. My father is seeing the need to prune his tree, so… I’m crossing my fingers he does it this year or next. (If you’re reading this papi… wink… wink…
Plots at the folks home
In the first bed, I have 3 different varieties of squash growing and onions.
I could really use help in this area! I’ve planted sun perennials in a space that is clearly shade. Any recommendations of what I should plant here? Any help is WAY appreciated. One thing I do like are the snapdragons that had just dropped all of it’s flowers before I took the pic :( They came back from last year and are gorgeous!
