Weekly Farm Update!
Anyway, I was noticing that I really don't have a "system" in place for when I do these "updates" but I'm thinking one a week is good enough for now. There is nothing but rain in the forecast for at least a week but that may change, it is California after all.
We are getting punished for the amazing warm temperatures we've had lately. The rain is making much easier for me on watering the lawn and garden. Although, if it was up to me, I would take out the entire lawn and put in a low water or waterless landscape put in. We are thinking about but just don't have the funds for it now.
Anyways, you can for the photos and I'm not going to disappoint. As usual, they have been uploaded into a Flickr set and put into the "Farm" collection but I figured I should toss in some freebies here.
We start off with a shot of a squash or cucumber plant I have moved into the front planter of the house. I'm horrible at labeling and I'm not sure what this one is but I know those blooms will be bringing in the wildlife.
I will end up putting in some U-Hoops or some kind of small cage to help hold this plant up and give me more room to possibly put in more. For now, it sits by itself with some chicken wire that are held in place by bricks. I don't want to run the risk of some bigger critters digging this one out, like they did my first ones.
Well, I hope these get you excited about the other photos for this week. I will try to stick to doing these weekly updates on Thursdays and include any info. about the harvest, if there is any, there as well.
