my shady urban garden

Garden Work, My Rural Backyard Garden, Photos of my Gardens

Even with all my weather complaints, we have had beautiful weather the past two days. 80’s and partly sunny. I was able to catch up with some gardening. Everything has now been fertilized (with GardenTone and I added a bit of super-phosphate to plants that should bloom or fruit and RoseTone on the roses). I cultivated, mulched (with Very Old Maine whatever-it-is) and supported the tomatoes, cukes, squash and basil. I had to replace a few basil plants that I lost to wet rot. I really like the velcro tomato ties – quick to apply and they look neat. I put in a few new annual flowers (I’ll post photos soon). And since the vege 6-
packs are now on sale ($1.99!), I got a few of these (celery and jalapeño peppers). I sprayed my cukes and squash stems with Seven, since we have bad borer problems and I gave the roses a light coat of general purpose rose insecticide. I also moved the beets, which didn’t do well, to make room for some bush beans and I planted some pole beans on the trellis next to the peas.
