Rainwater and Nitrogen
We've had torrential rains for a few days with plenty of nitrogen fixing electrical storms. The combination of it all has stimulated the garden into stunning growth! This is what I woke to this morning...
The brassicas quite literally outgrew the confines of the row covers *in 2 days*. The covers won't fit over the rows!
Ripe raspberries just washed with rain water
Crimson Sweet melon blossoms
the first sunny calendula
succulent Red Russian Kale
It's a jungle out there now!
Hollyhock blooms are on their way
drips and drops
and misty air
makings for salve
lush squash and potato plants and a happy kitty...
sopping wet annuals
with droopy flowers
small wild tomatoes (just a few)
and weeds gone WILD
I've got my work cut out for me this week... If I'm not back in a few days, send help!
