Granny Tells You What's Going On

Garden Troubles

I’ve had more problems than usual with my vegetable garden this year.  We had to replant the lettuce and the carrots.  The beets came up pretty spotty.  A few of our tomatoes suffered frost damage, and some tomatoes just died, don’t know why.  To top it all off, a few days ago, 12+ broke off the the huge wind and rain storm we had here. Papa and I found some more last night, and I’m planting them today.

I also had poor luck with some perennial seeds I tried to start indoors.  A few days ago, Papa brought me more seed, and I threw it directly into the ground.

The trees and the lawn are loving the huge rainfalls we’ve had.  I haven’t heard anyone complaining about the lake heights, but there’s plenty of time left this summer.  Only a select few people are actually running their sprinkler systems around here.  We don’t have underground sprinklers and we never water the grass.  This year, a lot of areas are filling in and it’s looking pretty good.  The trees are happier than they’ve been in years.

I have a ton of photos on the progress of the garden, so I’ll post them later.
