God is so good all the time. This morning I gathered our first mustard of the season so we will have fresh mustard for dinner tonight. I just love being able to go out in our garden and get our fresh vegetables. My little grandson loves the star apples lol. Thank God we have a few on the tree this year; more than ever before. Last year we had some but the cold ruined them. This year the tree was loaded with blooms but not all the blooms mean fruit because the tree is self-pollinating so some of the blooms are male and some female and only the female bear fruit. But we have plenty and some to share; I love to share.
Everything in the garden is looking good except… My onions are not coming up like I hoped but I will give them time. And the first carrots I planted refused to germinate so I replanted them and some more beets last week. I think with the beets, spinach and English (sweet) peas I used too much cow manure. They were all planted in the raised beds and none of them did anything. So this week (maybe Wednesday) I will plant some more pea seeds in the side garden.
Oh yeah, I didn’t tell you. In September my husband rotator tilled the side yard for me and we had six yards of garden soil brought in so I now have a garden there. I am so proud of it because I can plant a lot more. It used to be in the shade but my neighbor had her tree trimmed so now it is in full sun; love it.
I will also till up the soil in the raised beds and try to plant some more spinach. I have just never had much luck with spinach. This year I planted turnips and they are doing well; first time I’ve tried them in ages. I don’t know why because we love turnips. I just love fresh greens period. My radishes are doing well so I’ve been able to get fresh radishes for a couple of weeks now. These are a tiny bit spicy but good and crunchy. Radishes are wonderful for a snack. I’ve planted some Watermelon Radishes for the first time and they are up but not big enough to eat yet. I can’t wait to try them. I try out new and weird vegetables from time to time.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you come back soon and in the mean time have a blessed, happy life and happy gardening.
