Glenda - Hi Mom! - wanted to know how the worms are going!
They're doing OK, but I think their activity level is slowing down due to the hot weather we've been experiencing. I managed to find some:
I'm a little worried - we'll find somewhere cooler for them, I think.
Elsewhere in the garden, the beans are doing great!!
The beetroot is having limited success - most have died off - but I'm not giving up just yet. The one or two that did survive are doing great, which is encouraging.. I intend to plant some more seedlings, but directly into that area rather than into a paper-pot this time.
(It's all a learning experience!)
And I'm crossing fingers and toes that this (and some others like it) is a carrot this time, and not a weed. :)
Here's something we had no part in - they could be apricots, but we're not entirely sure. They don't taste wonderful, but they've weighed down the tree!
We've taken out the no-dig garden bed's contents - it was a little sad to pull out perfectly good corn, but we'll start again.
Oh, and good news, we discovered the missing ingredient in good compost - water! It was dry and cold and wasn't working at all.. with the addition of some water, we now have heat! Finally!
Until next time!
