Gardening

Early September in the Garden

Chris spends most mornings at the plot watering and doing random chores. Right now we’re waiting on compost before starting more seeds in other beds. Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on:

watermelons
Watermelon’s from a school’s plot. We took one of them but it was not quite ripe and very seedy.

Chris hand pollinated a few watermelon flowers to see if he could get a few more out of the season.
