the beautiful garden spider
Well, the Fair is over the Horse Show is over and hopefully by Friday this heat will be over. What better way to celebrate the coming of Fall than to come to your first Weed'em & Reap Garden Club meeting?
7:00 P.M. at the UT Ag Extension office 2105 Midland Road. It was pointed out to me that I have been posting the wrong address for the Extension office. Is that why you missed our meetings?
I totally forgot to harvest my last planting of edamame! I could probably still eat it, but it certainly does not have it's "eye appeal" brown pods all over. My reason for forgetting? Out of site, out of mind. They were planted at the back of the garden near the squash which stopped producing a month ago.
Every time I harvested the yard long beans, okra, Chinese melon, etc., they were all on the other side. No real excuse, just a gardener's laziness that comes near the end of the season, I guess.
They were right next to the potatoes. THE POTATOES! I forgot them too! I wonder if they are still good?
I broke the handle on my garden fork a few months ago and have not replaced it yet. Just another excuse for not doing what I should.
I know you are horrified that I could do such a thing, but..... it happens more than I care to admit. Well, I did admit it, so I guess I don't mind telling on myself. :-)
