Things are really getting going down at the Community Garden. My peas are about 8 inches tall now, and my onions are really starting to fill out, as far as onions go. The actual stems are about 1/2-1 inch tall. The area around my bed is starting to get filled in with the mint that grow like crazy, and I keep pulling it in fear that it will take over the actual bed within the summer. I will NOT be a happy camper!!! Even though it smells awesome and tastes great, mint is one of the most invasive plants. I don't even grow it simply because it grows like a cancer wherever it takes root. I can harvest it from everywhere in the neighborhood!
So anyways, my neighbor's strawberries have flowers on them, and someone created a new plot on the corner. There is a HUGE pile of humus just waiting to be put into beds on the work day. I hope I am home for it. We get out plants delivered that day, and I am in need of tomatoes since mine look like total hell. I think only a few of them will make it into the garden. I MUST NOT start them so early next year.
On the Home Front, all the beds are built, and I have ordered my dirt. It is scheduled to arrive next Tuesday at 8 am. Yay!!!
