Keeping busy at Garden on Sherlock Street. A little harvesting of veggies each day. I'm also trying to plant a few things for a fall garden this year. The carrots are up nice. Hoping to put in some radishes and lettuce soon. I have a few containers that just have given it up for the year. Seems impatiens did not like something about our weather this summer. I may just pull out the dying flowers and plant lettuce in those containers.
Started thinking about getting bulbs soon. I have some areas that I noted were lacking in flowers last spring and I'm checking out options for bulbs to put in those places.
School is back in session in our town. Seems crazy early to me, but there is so much to schedule in a school year that they need those early days to get it all in I guess.
We are getting a good variety of birds to the garden this year. I don't know what most of them are, but the grape jelly for the orioles has been a hit with more than just the orioles. I've started stocking up on grape jelly when it goes on sale to keep all the birds coming.
Be well my friend and enjoy the garden!
