I can’t believe it’s Thursday already! This week has just flown by!
We stopped by the garden again yesterday. It’s official … our tomatoes are toast.
So we replanted – again. Maybe the third time’s a charm? We noticed that while we did have a little bit of corn coming up, it wasn’t going to be enough to provide us with much, if any, corn … and that part of the garden plot was higher than much of the rest of the garden. So we decided to scrap the corn and put in tomatoes instead.
I also noticed that one of the two zucchini replantings has sprouted … that gives us 3 zucchini plants which will be
too much plenty. The two that sprouted from our first planting may not be thriving, but they are holding on. Hopefully when we finally get out of monsoon season and it warms up, they’ll take off.
And there’s no change with our beans … our second replanting has produced no sprouts, and our first planting is holding on as well (that’s string running across in the photo … for the beans to climb … hopefully?). We planted a few more seeds to fill in the gaps in our row of beans.
And this is what we found when we came home from the garden.
We’d been given notice that the village water department would be doing some work to provide water to the house under construction across the street. And we knew that this day would be coming … the water mains are all on our side of the street, and we’d seen this in our neighbors’ yards as houses were being built on the other side of the street. When I took the picture, they’d finished up and were putting the dirt back into the hole. After a few weeks, when the dirt has had time to settle, they’ll come back and refill if necessary and lay down sod.
We got a little rain last night, but thankfully it was a very gentle rain, so I don’t think we got any significant accumulation.
I didn’t get any time with needle and thread yesterday. After we got home from the garden, it was time to prepare a meal for a young family from church who just had a baby … and then time to prepare our meal. It was such a nice day yesterday that we decided to go for a walk after dinner.
Other than a 9:00 eye exam this morning, I have nothing scheduled … hopefully I’ll get some needle and thread time today.
