i didn't have a ton of time on Sunday, but managed to get in about two hours of work in the garden. still a lot to do, as always, and i hope Tuesday is rain free!
the new herb beds are doing well. the oregano looks a bit ragged, but will fill in better in the spring. the lemon balm is growing like it was never moved.
the cucumber plant is going crazy! so is the dill. the mesclun needs to be harvested and new seeds sown.
I'm not sure how cabbage grows, but the cabbage we planted seems to be growing tall and not forming a head. I'll keep my eyes on it.
Brussels sprouts are doing pretty good. all of the tomato plants are growing by leaps and bounds. i pulled all of the radishes, and my beans did not grow very well, so something new will get planted (hopefully tomorrow).
for the past few years, the German chamomile Holly had planted three years ago had run rampant all over the garden. there isn't as much this year, but it is still popping up (but in mush more manageable numbers).
the perennial sunflowers are beginning to bloom. they will all be moved to the back of the cutting garden.
my mom had cleared a place to put in another dahlia. i dug the hole and then placed the stake. if you place the stake afterward, you could damage the tuber.
i weeded this troublesome bed, and then planted zinnia and cosmos seeds. also left some of the Queen Anne's lace, since i do like it as a cut flower, but i always pull quite a bit out because it can take over very quickly.
ugh. this "decorative" grass is a problem. it started as a little clump we got from a friend, and has now taken over an entire end of this bed. i have no idea what to do with it or where to move it.
