Seriously…I’m so over the summer already. Unfortunately, here in Phoenix, the Fall weather will hit around Winter. Sadly, that is not really a joke. 🙁
Sorry I missed the Saturday Garden Report…not much to report. The green pepper are getting some leaves back but my 2 itty bitty watermelons rotted out…sad.
I am preparing my next garden box for Fall planting but I am not as far along as I hoped I would be.
I filled 2 boxes at the beginning of summer with some soil mix from a local quarry. I might as well have planted into solid clay. So these 2 boxes have been sitting all summer…
I shoveled out the dirt and put it on a tarp. I figured I could mix it in with something and create a better element for growing veggies.
Then I started adding compost, garden soil and a bit of the old dirt in the box. I spent a long time hand mixing it…
Tomorrow I will add grids back to the box and start planting. I hope to have everything completed this weekend.
Just in case you missed it, this is the plan for this 4×4 box.
