Updates: May 26 to June 1

Spread the love

I’m still getting used to the idea that it’s June already. After a heat wave in April, May was a bit cold and damp which hasn’t been good for our little tomatoes and leafy vegetables. It’s supposed to heat up now for a bit, but we need to get some fertilizer in the ground so the plants have the nutrients they need. In two weeks, we’re helping build another garden in the city and will be getting a plot there as well. Time to diversify our crops!


What our garden should be looking like (it’s not)

Looking forward to another busy weekend of wine tasting (and studying – it’s hard. Actually.) and visiting with family. My parents are in town, so I plan on taking them out for dinner!

Hope you have a great weekend, be sure to check out some of my favourite posts of the week.

  1. So that’s not your garden I presume lol. Our garden is coming along nicely. I have had to buy more basil because ours didn’t all come up. Last year we had so much we made basil cubes for the freezer to last us all winter. We want to do the same again this year.

  2. Your garden looks so pretty. One of my tomato plants is out of control huge! I have no idea how you are supposed to prune it! lol! Just start cutting?

      We didn’t prune ours back last year, but I think things would ripen faster if you did. I would start by cutting off a few branches which don’t contain too many flower buds, so you don’t lose too much fruit.

    Thanks for the mention 🙂 Leafy greens are the best. Show us new pics of your garden some time. Have fun with the wine tasting you sommelier 😀

  5. So many great posts, so little time. I’ve been reading/commenting for the past nearly two hours and there are literally 5 posts on this list I would love to read. First world problems, I guess 😉

    The garden looks lovely. Wish I had a green thumb!

  7. Ah I bet I am appearing so ungrateful for the mention! This trackback just came through too! Thanks so much!
