a busy weekend
Category: new garden | Posted: Mon Sep 29, 2008 6:25 pm
Well we were very busy the whole weekend. picking toms. then taking the tom plants out of the garden. were try something new. we heard if the vines were hung upside down the rest of the toms should ripen. there must be over a dozen hanging-we'll see what happens. Then we took down the post that went to the tomatoes. I dug up all the gladiolas and layed them out flat to dry. THEN we had to start digging around a few stumps (oh only about 5-6). My husband took a chain and pulled out a few with his ford ranger. As he says "never under estimate the work of a ford." Then my son brought home a tractor from work and started the BIG digging under those roots and stumps. Wow were some of these stumps huge. The last one came out today, I can't wait to show picts. I'm still flabergasted at the size of this last stump. It looks as if it would have takin up my whole garden.(if the roots had been upward). right now my 'old garden' looks like deep ditches (some were as deep as 5 ft.) and hills of dirt/sand. Its totally unbeleiveable. I would like to show as many picts as I can-maybe figure out how to just make a link to my photobucket may be easier.
As soon as I get them organized be watching for picts to come. What a weekend, whew.

taking down the garden
Category: new garden | Posted: Fri Sep 26, 2008 8:04 pm
They're saying next week will bring 60 degr weather.
Which means this weekend we will be taking down the toms and getting any stumps pulled out. All this in getting ready for the new greenhouse. Much work to be done before it goes up. Glads need to be dug up, weeds need to be pulled, rototil it once or twice, taking down some fencing and the post that held up the toms. So much work. I'll start some picts tomorrow.
