Woke Up Early....
Saturday, 16 Jun 12 Sunny 27°C / 81°F
Not sure why but woke up around 6 a.m. and felt really refreshed. What is a gardener to do…. Make a pot of coffee and water his plants. With coffee cup on one hand and water pitcher in the other I gave all of my plants at least 2 gallons. Luckily, I have two pitchers so by the time I empty one pitcher, the other has been filled by my rain barrel. All the barrels are full thanks to the drenching we received on Monday. The state of North Carolina is actually drought free for the first time in about two years!!!
As always noticed a little deer damage on a few of my tomato plants but nothing major.
Very happy with how my Kentucky Wonder pole beans are sprouting. The goal is to really get so many I can freeze them. Picture is of future components of a BLT.
Tomorrow is Father’s Day in America so I think I will take a day off.
