Last night I was working on another box for the garden and suddenly there were ominous clouds blowing in. It really scared me. Then there were winds like I haven't seen in a while. Mom took her ferns in so they didnt fall off the hooks and then we took in all my hanging baskets. I prayed that God would put His had over the garden and keep it safe along with my family. There weren't any tornado warnings, but man that wind made me think one was very very close. I got up this morning to one corn stalk bending just a tad. Boy God is good.
I also went out and harvested. Got another 10 1/2 ounces of beans and another cucumber! Soon I will have enough for one jar of pickles! LOL I think my Tiny Tims are about to turn red. They are such a light green.
My upside down Porter tomato plant has grown up past the basket! He has blooms on it and I was wondering if it would come back down or will it break when the tomatoes get big?
I was able to find 3 12 inch pots to permanently plant some of my 21 tomato plants. I am planning on getting some more wood and make two 1 1/2 x 6 foot boxes for the other tomatoes. I have no idea what I am going to do with the other 6 plants but I am sure I will find something to do with them. I have 4 hanging planters but I dont know where to hang them. I have some other hooks on my awning but the tree blocks most of the 4 hours of sunlight I get there.
My banana plant is happy in the yard but when it gets hot, the leaves fall completely down. When it gets cooler, they branch out horizontal like it should normally look. I wonder if this is bad or not.
I took a picture of my harvested beans, but it looks like the picture from yesterday so I wont post it. Just in case someone has slow downloads like lookmanoweeds aka Rachel. Sorry girl!
