Larry set two posts and ran a coated line for my tomatoes. In about 2 weeks he will add one. We hope we can leave this and plow around it. It is really laborious to put up a fence each year and then tear it down. We had done that until last year. Last year, I tried using straw under the tomatoes and letting them fall over. Total failure. So we are trying this. I hope it works well. After the tomato row I have two rows of okra. Larry loves it. So do the deer. Then I have two rows of contender green beans.
After my green beans, I have a row of squash and then 7 hills of Black Diamond watermelons and 6 rows of sweet corn.
I put 50 pounds of fertilizer on the watermelons and corn today. I must pull the pellets toward the corn so it will mix with the soil. I am bushed. So it may be tomorrow before I get that done. I thinned the corn but it is still pretty thick. Larry has noticed that all the corn farmers leave their corn thick.
This is a sunflower that my birds planted.
I only bought two pots of flowers this year. I like them but always just throw them away in the fall. It seems like a waste.
These are the Swamp Daisies my friend Rhonda gave me. She said they would get thicker and they have. The bloom in October.
I have some mint that Fleta gave me years ago. Any fool can grow mint. It is like a weed.
I am babying two Saw Tooth Oak trees. I planted two in the yard and have two in pots. I am hoping someone will want them. If not, I will set them out somewhere this fall. This Oak is a fast growing Oak.
Last but definitely not least, Clayton got his pup today. He named her Bailey. He got Bailey for making good grades. I hope he continues with the grade success and pray Bailey will be the perfect dog. Every boy needs a dog.
