Learning! #Gardenfails

So, my tomatoes are doing terribly. They are wilting and nothing seems to bring them back. I’ve checked the soil. It’s not too damp and not too dry. I’ve feed them. I’ve worked egg shells into the soil. Nothing is working. When I look up what can cause it, it seems like it is the heat. I’ve trimmed many of them. Some still are wilty, but a couple have come back. I’ve no clue how my yield will be.

I go to the farmers market and get depressed, lol. Produce is rolling in and mine is flowering, but other than small green tomatoes, nothing has produced. I’m sure most of them use green houses. I did, but I wonder if I didn’t leave them in there long enough.

Though, the tomato plants I kept in the house in the window are smaller than the ones I have in my garden and are from the same group. But they look stronger and have a ton of blossoms. I know because I planted them at my daughters home. I check on them every time I go over.

My zucchini are full of blossoms, my watermelon are showing lovely yellow flowers. Radishes, beats, and turnips seem to be doing well along with my butternut squash and pumpkins. I even found my first watermelon!

20200722_164233

My green peppers have started getting peppers which is good.

My swiss chard sprouted but haven’t grown much. My parsnips are non-existent. I’ll have to try sprouting them in a paper towel like I was told. Maybe that would help.

My corn is doing great! One of the stalks even has its topper on it! I did a garden dance when I saw it. The clover seems to grow overnight no matter how much I pull it. I wonder if clover is good for anything?

20200722_164324

My snap peas have gone after a couple of harvests. I won’t grow them next year. We really don’t eat enough of them. I’ll try normal peas next year. Something we’d eat.

My beans are wild! Most of them grew to a foot long! I’ve done two harvests of them and expect one more, but the plants are dying. I have them in the front and they shouldn’t have all day sun. My bad! I planted 13 plants and it made, so far, 4 meals. If I put them in back next year where they have sun and shade, and double or triple the amount of plants, I should get a yield that will keep us in beans over the winter. Not eating them for every meal, of course!

20200703_172848

Crazy long! It didn’t take many to make a meal for two people. I didn’t even realize they were beans at first!

My broccoli is sad. It is growing but the bundles from 6 plants wouldn’t even make a meal. So far no cauliflower has manifested. I’m thinking because the zucchini is hogging, well, everything. It shadows over the cauliflower, stealing all it’s light.

My pumpkins plants seem to be going good. I lost some and am left with seven plants, but they have really sprouted in the last week.

I’m learning a lot about what to and not to do. My dad said I need to spread out my tomatoes more and maybe that is the problem. I’ll find out next year.

My cherry tomato plant is a monster though, and loaded with tomatoes. They are just starting to turn red, too.

20200722_164307

I couldn’t even get the whole plant in the picture. It’s a spoiled monster, lol. It wilted every time I took it out of the greenhouse so I just left it in there.

I don’t know that I’ll plant broccoli and cauliflower next year. I need to find out what I’m doing wrong.

My cabbage is starting to ball, so that’s great. And my black raspberries have been doing killer. I’ve gotten about 3 pints from them. My granddaughter’s eaten 2 of them, lol. Better than them going to waste. Jam uses too much sugar and I’m diabetic, so not worth making for me. I’ll keep my sweets natural. (chocolate is natural, right?)

Milkweed grew out front and I didn’t kill it. It sprouted in the middle of my lawn. We used to have a whole bunch on the side of the house, but they disappeared over the years. I mowed around them. I was rewarded with monarch butterflies! Milkweed is their only food. I don’t want to see any species die out and if I can help in any small way, I will try. Even if my yard looks crazy.

I still spend and hour or two everyday working on them. It keeps me occupied and happy to be outside.

I hope your gardens are doing better than mine! Let me know! Any hints on broccoli and cauliflower would be great!

Moving is hard work!

If you’ve noticed, I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks. My daughter bought a house and they closed on it on June 19th and we’ve been moving her stuff since. Ugh. This is one reason we’ve lived in our house for twenty six years.

I hate moving! My parents moved every three years without fail while I was growing up. In direct contrast, my daughter had twenty six years of cr@p to move! Plus all of her daughter’s stuff. She turns five next week and has lived here since she turned one.

They moved into a beautiful house with a swimming pool we’ve been taking full advantage of! I finally got a breather today. They came over here! So I only had to round up stuff rather than drive it there.

Shouldn’t be an issue? They moved an hour away. Not as bad as my son who is stationed in South Carolina who we see maybe once a year. But still two hours of my day stuck in a car is not my favorite thing. You can bet they are not getting rid of me easy, lol!

Luckily I have my garden to keep me busy with the girls gone. When I’m not babysitting. Yes, I’m still doing that 2-3 days a week.

My corn is growing well. My onions are thriving. I’m a bit worried about my cabbage, they seem to be a bit wilty. My green beans finally have pods on them! Zucchini is blossoming along with my tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. My root vegetables are all coming up.

But we will NOT mention the parsnips. Never plant them to transfer them. It doesn’t work.

This is my front garden in the back yard. It is 10 ft by 20 ft changing to 25 ft by the tomatoes. I had to avoid huge slabs of cement buried next to my garage. Don’t know why they are there, but I work around them.

This is the rear garden in the back year. It measures 7 ft by 30 ft. And yes, I’m a horrible weeder. I take something called the hounddog and use that. It’s spiky and tears through the weeds, pulling them up without me having to crawl on the ground. I planted the onions I had in a container between the corn. It doesn’t seem to be hurting either as both are growing well.

Not all of my corn sprouted, or rather, something dug them up and ate them judging from the paw prints I found. I replanted so I’ve got a few different sizes growing. We always said corn is growing well if it is knee high by the Fourth of July. Some of them already are. Woot!

These are the plants (and out of control weeds) in my green house. My cherry tomatoes appear to have an issue with it’s leaves. I have to investigate it! Regardless, there is a good pint of tomatoes already growing. They are on the opposite side. The cherry tomato is totally out of control! One of the branches is growing so far it is snaking along the ground and almost reaches the back wall of the greenhouse. Another branch has snaked over to the shelving unit and is at home there, happily sprouting flowers. This picture is from Monday and it has gone crazy in the last week.

The red peppers in the pot are almost ready to go in the ground. I tossed a red pepper bit in the dirt in a tin can and grew these. I was so excited it actually worked!

My salad pot has flowers! I’ve been using the salad and they are ready for more harvesting already and hopefully look like they are reseeding themselves. The plants in the long tray next to my salad mix are pumpkin. My mom tossed seeds in a toilet paper tube with dirt and grew them. She had no idea what plant it was, she found the seeds she’d dried from last year. So now I have 16 pumpkin plants! I’m going to have my husband till another spot to plant them. I traded them tomato plants for the pumpkin. I’ve have given them tomatoes regardless, lol. But pumpkin was a nice bonus. We will do that as soon as it stops raining.

My dad said his tomato plants from the store were only a couple of inches high. The ones I had were eighteen inches when he got them. He was surprised since we grew them from seed.

This is the front of my house. I forgot to get a picture of the strawberries. They are bursting with berries. My granddaughter loves it. She eats them as fast as they get red.

So, empty nesting now but between gardening and writing, I’ll keep busy.

Not to mention putting the house back in order, ripping out carpeting and sanding down wood floors to varnish them. But that’s another story! And the carpet ripping is happening today! It’s too wet to do much in the garden.

Have a happy, safe and productive weekend! I’m hoping to.

Herbs and Containers

As if all the gardening I’m doing isn’t enough, I ordered half a beef. I don’t really want to have issues with food shortages and pray I don’t lose power! It came in and my freezer is full. I’ve a large chest freezer and it is now stock piled. I’m thankful I didn’t follow up on getting a pig. As it is, I have a turkey thawing in my fridge that just wouldn’t fit in either freezer!

20200611_141629

Besides having two garden beds, I started growing herbs. Since my daughter is moving, I’m doing a set for her also. I’ve containered them in pint glass jars. It seems to be working well. Stones in the bottom to help drainage and it lets me check on the roots and water amount. I don’t want to drown them.

 

The only issues I’ve had is the cilantro seems to be dying off around the edges and I’ve had no luck growing chives. Luckily, I was garage saleing yesterday and found someone selling them. Rather than containerize them, I’m going to see if I can plant them around the bed of my raspberries. Better than the creeping charlie that has taken over everything!

Besides the appeal of fresh herbs for cooking, I bought a book, Medicinal Herbs, to get information on how to use them for health. To be honest, I’ll probably experiment on myself, lol. But, it is mainly for research for the next book in a Dragon’s Fated Heart Series.

20200613_053851

The one after Reviving Mara which I’m working on now.

Rog’s book needs to be done. He is the healer of the group and I think it is appropriate if his mate is interested in the same. Beginning to grow herbs and researching is as far as I’ve gotten, but I have to start somewhere.

Now, on to news of my garden. My jalapeno peppers are flowering. My cherry tomatoes are flowering. Carrot, turnip and radishes have made an appearance. I thought my carrots never would! Sweet corn has come up. My broccoli are forming and my garden is flourishing.

My parents came over and my dad was shocked at the size of them. He’s the gardener. My tomato plants are anywhere from a foot to two feet in size already and hopefully will be blooming soon. I had 24 plants set aside for my dad. My parents were thrilled. They bought some from the store that are only a couple of inches tall. The ones I had for them were a bit over a foot already so will bloom sooner.

I’m sending a few tomato plants off with my daughter also to her new house.

My lettuce is growing good. I made a salad with the greens I harvested. I won’t ever have a ton, but enough to not have to buy too much from the store. A nice supplement to keep costs down! I watch every penny since I retired. I’m growing that in my greenhouse, but pull it out to bask in the sun every couple of days. I’m going to try to start romaine lettuce from the bottom of the head I got from the store. I’ll let you know how it goes.

IMG_20200609_125313_701

Have a healthy and happy week! Let me know if there are specific herbs or books I should be checking out.

Storms, gardening and deployment

We just had a doozy of a storm this past week. Trees down, lines down all around town. For once our place was fine. Power flickered but stayed on. Usually we lose a tree or two. Not everyone weathered if okay, but most of the trees down appeared to not hit houses, just almost. We just have a ton of leaves down now. Better than the alternative.

My garden, however, appears to have sprung grass all over it. So now I have two large plots to clear. Again. Ugh. I hate weeding. I’ve tried that garden screen and it doesn’t seem to work for me. That or my weeds are very hardy.

So, now the hard work starts!

I finished planting my watermelon, cantaloupe and butternut squash. I still have tomato plants and I’m going to let them grow in the greenhouse for a bit. Most of the ones I planted were about a foot and a half tall. I’ll let these catch up before I decide what to do with them. Dad wanted some, so I’ll probably give most of them to him. I’ve close to 50 planted all ready.

The strawberries and snap peas are already producing. My granddaughter is eating them as they grow! I won’t have to worry about preserving them. She doesn’t leave many behind.

She’s thrilled to see the corn growing. But isn’t interested in the turnips, broccoli and cabbage. Surprise!

I’m using this year as a guide to see what I need to grow next year to feed us. Then I’ll add some manure at the end of the season. The farmers do it, so I don’t think it will hurt. I’ve been adding egg shells to the garden and I’m debating on whether or not to add the contents of my hair brush. Supposedly it gives nutrients to the plants to grow. Ick. Maybe, but hair is gross. So it probably won’t happen.

In other news, my son is back in the United States! I’m excited even though he’s in a different state. He left in December for a three month deployment. It turned into six months due to Covid19. He still hasn’t been allowed to go home and will this weekend and then is required to shelter in place for fourteen days.

I’m sure he won’t mind that! He’ll be glad to see his wife and dogs. We’ll go down and visit him this summer despite the heat and humidity. Hopefully the riots and looting will be done also. I’m all for peaceful protesting and I believe it should continue until things change. We are all one species on earth.

Everyone of my book signings have been cancelled. For one of them, Writer’s on the River, we’re doing take overs and raffles still. I’ll be on June 14 starting at 6 pm central time and June 15 7-7:30 pm. https://www.facebook.com/groups/writersontheriver/

Feel free to join in. I’d love to see you there.

What to do with all that food?

20200514_184524

Poppies for remembrance! Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend. Take the time to remember any in your life that have served in the Military and are no longer with us. I’ll be remembering my Great Grandfather Henry and my FIL Adelaido.

I’ve been researching for my upcoming book Reviving Mara and my own personal needs. I’m already looking at ways of preserving my upcoming bounty in my garden.

I finished planting the first one. In it is sweet corn, red cabbage, broccoli, carrots, turnips, sweet peppers, zucchini, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers. I’m planning on a second garden in another location that will be tomatoes, radishes and watermelon.

20200521_122041

I’m using old fence slats to mark the rows.

20200521_134000

20200521_121948

I admit, it doesn’t look like much. Mud and sticks, lol. The second plot isn’t cleared yet, but hopefully by the end of this weekend.

So, I’m also getting 1/2 a cow in in a couple of weeks. I’m just trying to make sure we have food if there is a shortage. With all the shutdowns, I wouldn’t be surprised. I’ve dehydrator and want to learn to can. I told my mom to expect to come up to help me when my garden comes in. She’s canned for years but I haven’t lived at home since I was eighteen, so never learned.

This article gives some info on canning meat. I don’t want to rely on just my freezer for my food. If the power goes off, and it does occasionally, I don’t want to have to mass cook at that point or lose my supplies. https://www.simplycanning.com/canning-meat.html

Here’s another idea I’d like to try.

Mom has never canned meat, but I want to try. My mom does an awesome tomato soup and I want to learn how she makes it.

I love dehydrating but it takes so long to do! I am planning on dehydrating peppers and carrots to drop in stews and soups.

 

 

I’m obsessed with having enough food, lol. But I’m obsessed with lots of things! However, my daughter and her BF just bought a house and will be moving. Part of the cow will end up with her and also my parents wanted some. Not a problem. But the girls won’t be getting all the steaks! LOL. I’m probably going to be hoarding those.

What is your plan for food storage? What do you have that will last long term? How do you store your food? Jars? Mylar Bags? Freezer?
