It is actually like Hades out in the gardens, and I’m glad anything is still alive. I’m harvesting and eating very few foods from the gardens now, and per my previous post, not planning to keep some of the less productive plants going. This makes me sad, but I also hate my water bill and am a little scared about the next one. So, today’s harvest:
How random, I know! I was afraid the watermelon wasn’t ready to be picked, but my instinct was good. The bottom was softening and it was perfect!
I have now successfully grown two watermelons. Who would have thunk it? I’m a bit of a watermelon farmer.
The rest of the garden is just hanging in. I’ll pull up the low yield crops, per my earlier post, tomorrow. Thank goodness for farmer’s markets or I’d be struggling for the next month, since my garden isn’t providing much food.
