We are halfway through the gardening season so now seems like a great time for a garden update. Year two of raised bed gardening has been both challenging and rewarding; the challenges coming mainly from pests and the rewards appearing in the form of victories over said pests. I'll get to all that in a bit.
Due to the increase in social activities on my calendar this summer, I have had to spend early weekday mornings and late weekday evenings tending to the garden, rather than large chunks of time on the weekends, ironically; I think this might actually be a smarter way to handle the duty, as it allows me more frequent opportunities to check for issues.
As an added bonus; mornings and evenings are when the hummingbirds are most active, which spurred me to hang a couple of feeders on the veggie trellis. Hopefully, I'll get some decent pictures of the birds in the next few days.
So, that's how it's going so far. I continue to advocate for a greenhouse to replace the kennels currently taking up space next to my garden. Hugh is unconvinced, but; Hugh is also the owner of an expensive side-by-side and two 4 wheelers that I didn't have a say in purchasing, so...
Yeah. I'm getting a greenhouse.
