A lull in my SFG.

A lull in my SFG.

Post  MrBooker on 5/31/2018, 11:49 am

Well, the spring rush is over now. The Mel's mix

rejuvenated, everything's planted and doing well and the compost piles are about ready. Not much to do this time of year except sit in the garden marvel at the sites, sounds and fragrance.
  Now, I'm just taking a break and waiting for harvest time but that won't be a task as we only harvest as needed. After that, it will be getting the fall garden ready. Fall is sometimes a little depressing for me but planting my fall garden gives me a lift.

     I still have two 4x8 hoop houses which worked out great for me last two years. If you don't have a hoop house, here's a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-QhAg2jhvw It's cheap and goes together fast.

    Two years ago, I covered my fall garden with about a foot of leaves and put plastic over the hoops and was harvesting carrots in January here in the Midwest.

Well done Mr. Booker.  It is good that you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your efforts. 

Myself, I am still in the midst of the spring rush as I really gave myself too much to do this year, due to the neglect of last year.  I realise now that it is important to keep maintaining the garden doing a little weeding each day and not being too ambitious in wanting to get results all at once.  I still have weeding to do, brush to clear, compost to sift and rebuild, and finish the carport make-over. Then I would to build some raised beds, and so it goes on.  I am never bored.
