One the most neglected things in this situation was my community garden plot, so last week I finally went to catch up on it.
I expected a forest of weeds and wilted plants, but was pleasantly surprised to see a small number of manageable weeds. Only a handful of onions weren’t growing.
So after about half and hour of weeding, everything looked great again. I earthed up my potatoes, and thinned out my carrots. I still have room to plant some more things there, so I’ll see what happens this weekend if I get a chance to go back there.
Everything got a good drink and I realized that I need to visit it more often. It was 6 weeks from the day I planted to checking up on everything.
Given how this year is going, I will be reimagining next year’s garden and making more realistic plans. Especially for our backyard garden, where I STILL have things that need to go into the ground. I’ll update you as soon as I get some more time.
