Happy fourth of July

Category: Pete 28s blog | Posted: Fri Jul 04, 2008 3:41 pm

First off happy 4th of July! I have decided to begin posting on my blog again but have decided to change the content of my messages.

Unfortunately my wife is not feeling all that well today and wont be accompanying me to the picninc today. Shes got a sore throat and stuffy nose. Luckily no one else has got it yet.

I picked a bunch of greenbeans yesterday and a few short carrots, they did not grow well this year for some reason. I had to put some more soil around my corn stalks as I dont think I planted them deep enough at the initial planting. My watermelons are growing slowly but surely. I lost a bunch of cucumber plants over the past few days. I am not sure what killed them. One day they were green and beautiful then the next they just simply had all brown leaves and yellow cucumbers. Boohoo!!! Well I think I will clear out the rows where the carrots and cucumbers were and begin to plant something else in their places. Any ideas on what I should plant?

Glad to see you blogging again Pete, it appears that having your wife and children back home has done wonders for you.
Go to the picnic, network and possibly find a new career while you are at it. ;)

You have plenty of growing season left for Okra, beans of all sorts and squash.
Depending on the type of cuke you planted it could have been done in by heat, some varieties just can not handle the summer heat.

I'm so glad you have decided to keep posting here.

I have a suggestion that you might like to think about. I hope you don't mind telling you about it.
A friend of mine has taken on work in other peoples gardens and is doing realy well. Is there a chance that you could maybe do the same kind of thing that she does? She cuts hedges, weeds, clears out old plants, replants areas and mows lawns. She charges extra to take rubbish away and is making a good living out of it now. She can fit the hours around her family life which is ideal.

Welcome hope, Pete. Sorry for your wife, but I hope you had a lovely celebration nonetheless. I had short carrots until I realized they grew better in sand with soil mixed in. *lol* Now I sort of miss the funny shapes.
