Garden Update: June 18th

Wow, you can really see how dry things are around here when looking near my garden...

I've been watering the garden every couple of days and Hubba has been trying really hard to keep our grass and trees watered, but clearly the pasture is suffering.

Most things have sprouted now.

yellow onions

The tomato have begun to flower, the rabbits have been enjoying our bean sprouts, 

and a very bold robin ate all of my almost ripe cherries over the last couple of days.  :-/

Gardening is what it is.  Right?  Last year we had issues with a very late frost and lots of hail.  This year, we're praying for rain.

Time to do a rain dance! I don't mind if the critters sneak a tiny bit, but like that bold robin, I disapprove of them completely feasting on my crops... Hope the rain comes for you guys, good luck and happy gardening!!

We could do with a trade. We have a lot of rain but not enough sunshine, plants are up but not really growing without the sun

@Tree Service Charlotte - Agreed. I definitely don't mind sharing... and I expect to share some... but ALL of my cherries?! I will be taking measures. :-/

@Alittlebitsheepish - I would be happy to trade. We could really use several good, soaking showers over the next few weeks.

Aw, huggles!

I thought we were dry but you have us beat. We have an irrigation system for the yard so our garden has been watered. I'm afraid to mow the pasture for fear we will fry it but the weeds are shooting up something fierce due to sandy soil.


fingers crossed for rain.
