Under a rock

Wow - I've really gotten away from this blog haven't I? How'd that happen? Hope everyone's had a great last month of summer.

I did manage to get a few fall crops planted around mid month: red and green cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. Unfortunately it was bad timing as we were headed out to the coast to spend the week in a beach house. I was so nervous about leaving them in the heat that I left the starter cups on the south side of the seedlings full of water to both cast shade and keep them a little damp while we were gone since no one would be around to take care of them. As it turned out, they were fine! (Whew~)

Today I'm going to try to get a few more fall crops in the ground: carrots, kale, lettuce.

And one of the flowers blooming now in the garden.

I'll try to make a big post here and catch you up on everything very soon... life's just been busy lately. I'm still gardening even if I'm not writing about it.

Glad to see you blogging again! Since school has begun again, I think everyone has been pretty busy. I can't wait to see how the garden is doing...

I was just wondering this morning if you'd given up on your blog. Glad to see your still around. Your flower (Dahlia?) is gorgeous!

Michelle said...

The flower is beautiful! I keep threatening to plant for fall and winter but it's still been so dang HOT here I can't get myself to go out there and actually WORK!

It is a busy time! That cup trick was pretty clever.

Ribbit said...

Woohoo! I can't wait to hear more.

I was just wondering where you'd got to the other day! Haha, you know you're addicted to the garden when you can;t go on vacation without worrying about your 'babies'!
Glad to hear all is well.

Granny, Yes it is. Still not in the swing of things - I'm just now looking at comments from a week ago! Yikes.

EG, I love that my daughter is finally just starting preschool. Heaven knows I need the break.

Sue, Still here! Even if I'm a bit slow.

Michelle, Thank you. Hope you got out and planted some fall crops. Our weather really turned this week. It sure feels like fall is here already!

Stefaneener, thanks - I think I get lucky sometimes. I was so worried about them keeling over!

Ribbit, I hope to oblige.

Joanne, I feel off the edge of the earth for a while but hopefully I'm back now. Oh!
