Time for a quick garden update!
It looks like it’s time for me to replant my tire planters with flowers — the nemophilias were lovely, but they decided they’d had enough and started drooping horribly over the sides. I’ve pulled them all out and will plant some new seed tomorrow.
I also pulled out my sugar snap and snow peas. The snow peas had stopped producing and the sugar snaps were really yellow. I discovered the sugar snaps had powdery mildew towards the bottom of their vines, which has now spread to the crystal apple cucumber plants. Doh!
I did find that there’s a cucumber growing! Exciting news! I’ve seen heaps of flowers but this is the first fruit on the vine. The cucumber vine is super prickly — I get little splinters stuck into my fingers if I’m not wearing gloves.
I’m thinking I might put some lettuces in the tire planter on the back patio, now that there’s really no room for them. I really loved that red sail variety.
It’s still raining here, and when it’s not sprinkling, it’s extremely muggy, so I haven’t been outside much this week. I have been keeping busy with zumba and free-stepping while watching tv on the Wii. Tomorrow, I’ll do some running (ever so briefly…) on the treadmill I think. Super tired today from zumba, but I really did well. Sometimes it’s hard for me to get into the workout but today I pushed myself to commit to every song. It’s a good feeling.
