Garden Update

I spent some time in the garden this morning. One of the great things about being a lazy gardener is the surprises, like when your Japanese Indigo flowers and you didn’t know how pretty their little pink flowers could be. I also found some volunteer Lamb’s Ear. I don’t know where that came from, but I’ll keep it. There were tenacious weeds. These weren’t the same plants that I had pulled up in the spring. These were other weeds that took the place of the weeds pulled up in the spring, like Bitter Dock and Evening Primrose. I like Evening Primrose, but they will take over so I made sure to pull up what I could. I found two bell peppers and a few springs of basil to add to our pizza today.

I amended the soil with compost when I made the second planting of cabbage, and it did help the plants make heads. Too bad the cabbage moths got to them, even under the netting. I guess I’ll have to try something different if I’m going to get cabbage and kale out of the garden.

My plan is to spend the rest of the day knitting on the couch. I’m so glad it’s October!

  1. Your cabbage moths are voracious! My cabbage problem is slugs, but it’s been dry enough this year they haven’t been too successful. I’m glad it’s October too, and the garden is winding down. I’m hoping to spend a couple of mornings cleaning up this week, and then do the last of the food processing. My Orkney has been calling to me, which is good, this is the winter to get it finished I hope!
