I'm jealous Neckipoo!!! 👅

I have radishes, lettuce, spinach up from seed. My onions and scallions are maintaining, and the bell peppers I planted are growing--about 6 inches now. But I have lost 3 cucumber plants and my melons and tomatoes are not looking very good. My potatoes are finally up, tho. I can't seem to find the time to get the darn beans planted. I better get that done this week if I want beans sometime this summer. I still have to put all the herbs I bought in pots too. Sigh. Work really cuts into my gardening time. LOL Razz

A deer got into my garden and ate some yellow beans, some watermelon and decimated my poor cherry tomato plants. It'll all grow back and I put up some more barbed wire Mad

The deer got in again Evil or Very Mad So much for peas and beans. They got one whole squash plant and the cherry tomatoes are all but toast... but I do have 40 ears of corn growing so far! sunny

So... I figured out why the deer ate my garden... she's gotta be preggers. She looks fuller than the regular deer... I wonder what deer gestation is

edit:

Deer Gestation

Does are bred during the rut which occurs from mid November to early December. This varies with location. The gestation period is usually about 200 days. The doe usually gives birth to a single fawn or twin fawns in late May or early June.

Yeah, I honestly really can't complain too much about it, has been a reliable machine for the money, just wish I could afford something fancier and faster with more bells and whistles, heh.

PostSubject: Garden woes   Sat Oct 11, 2008 11:36 pm

How did your garden turn out, Neckipoo?

I started out well, then the weed overtook me. And I mean OVERTOOK ME . And the onions and the tomatoes and the potatoes and all the others. damn

I did manage to free the tomatoes, and the bell peppers, and I got a few snap peas, and the potatoes produced a few taters, but I think the tilling I did just stirred up the weed seeds. It wasn't this bad last year and I didn't do anything to it.

Anyway, I had dreams of preserving roasted peppers in olive oil and garlic this fall, and making salsa and marinara sauce. But tha damn things were sickly all summer. They just started producing in the middle of August!!!!!
But I still had hopes, and carefully tended them.

Then my landlord decided to put a sprinkling system--the one she'd been promising for 8 years--in. So guess where the pipe and power cords for the damn thing went??

Yup.

Right through my pepper plants and through the potatoes and tomatoes.
Can you say pissed off?
The day before the idiot did it, I was home all day, and even talked to him. I had left him a note previously in the week to let me know if he had to go through the gardens for any reason and to leave the damned gate shut cause the neighbor hood dogs go in there and crap all over if it is open.

Did he tell me he was going to have to tear up my peppers and watermelon and cantelope? NOOOOOO!

So, I did get a couple of peppers out of 6 plants, and I dug some taters he didn't slice up, and one tomato plant was saved. So my gardening tale comes to an end. A bunch of green tomatoes in a box, and a few taters to put in my pot roast.

Sigh. And today it is snowing.

Anyone else have a poor gardening year?

Smoochies,
Cerri


Razz Razz Razz LMFAO!!!!!! The WEEDS--plural--WEEDS overtook me. Not the WEED. Heheheheheheheheh.

I got some corn. That's it. The doe ate everything else including the rose bush. It's ok though.

The pepper plant survived and is getting healthy again just in time for the cold. I may get a pepper out of it yet!

Yeah, Cerri, stay away from the weed. It'll make you a lazy gardner!

heh.

I didn't have any weed or weeds, just was working too many hours to take care of my back yard. Maybe next year. A rose managed to bloom even through all the neglect, and there is yummy spearmint growing everywhere in the corner.
