The Garden Keeps Giving

From Gardening

A few weeks ago, we finally picked one of the watermelons that had been hanging out and growing outside. It was okay, not very sweet, but I'd neglected to water them much and we had not seen rain in what felt like weeks at that point. I know the secret to sweetness is generous watering.

Our crops of greens are also doing fairly well, although those in the bed closest to the house aren't getting as much sun now that it has shifted, and might not grow well enough. We have mustard greens, kale, radishes, watercress, and collards growing. Yum!

  1. They're just starting to plant kale & greens here, for the winter season: they don't go to seed so rapidly when they have low light.
