It's so hot!

My poor radishes died because of the heat! :( Well, my watermelons and pumpkins certainly don't seem to mind, they just barely sprouted today. I also planted some corn and spinach (a little late but I've been busy with other things) and our tomato, zuchinni and squash are doing just great!
Well, I'm going back to bed. Later days!

Snail Wars & the first seeds sown
Category: Current events | Posted: Sun Jun 07, 2009 7:32 pm
-insert Star Wars theme here-
Long ago, in a garden not so far away...
There was a girl and a bucket of soapy water.
That's right. SOAPY WATER.
You just pick them up and pop em' the the bucket of SOAPY WATER. I also added salt just to see them fizzle.
Don't get me wrong, I still love snails. Just not when they're eating my plants.
On a slightly less morbid note, I planted some of my seeds today in my little biodegradable container thingies. I planted 2 pumpkins, 6 sunflowers, 4 radishes, and 2 watermelons, and then I watered them with water mixed with my miracle*grow all purpose plant food.
I hope and pray that they grow.
I didn't know that when it comes to small seeds like radishes that you have to plant multiple seeds in case the don't grow, so I went back and added two more seeds to each container with the radish seeds.
Good thing my mom knows a thing or two about gardening.
Well, later days!
