A busy work week kept me out of the garden except for watering for much of this week. After playing chauffeur to all the kids and their activities today I indulged in a visit to the local garden center. I bought something I never planted before....Sweet Corn. The gardener assured me that the only trick was to plant multiple rows to help pollination...and otherwise a no brainer.
We added a ready to harvest head of romaine, some broccoli, and baby radishes and Goddess Support made a killer salad to go with the gnocchi and gravy we brought back from the Grand Central Market in Manhattan yesterday. It was an awesome meal!
Right now there are 2 front loader bucketfuls of black gold AGAIN in the back of my pickup....to fill the last 2 raised beds and set in the last of the vegetables. The weather is set to cool off to a more May like level, so the crazy growth may slow down a bit this week. We sure could use a little rain as we are under fire danger with the wind up and the humidity low.
Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow gardeners and bloggers...I hope your day is filled with whatever makes you happiest!
