Arkansas continues to have an unbelievably wet Spring/Summer. Our garden is a soggy mess! We have lost lots of plants due to the soggy ground. We did have a dry day on Friday so Farmer Rick got to till in some of the weeds before Saturday’s rain started again.
Our tomatoes are hanging in there, but boy could they use a warm, dry, sunny day! I even found this little beauty!
Our squash is finally starting to take off. We only had a few sprout and survive from our first planting. We replanted and have no idea what variety is surviving. I guess we will just be glad something is growing.
Our peppers are not at all happy with all this rain. They are small and yellow looking, but still starting to bloom.
After only one picking our sugar snap peas are looking done. They were yummy but I’m very disappointed to just get a couple pickings.
My garden container flowers are actually loving the rain. I dropped a bail of straw in the bottom of this old trough last summer and planted zinnias. It worked great. This year I planted seed from last year’s zinnias, marigolds and sunflowers. It has buds. I hope for flowers to open this week.
We are eating sugar snap peas and cauliflower from the garden this week. How’s your garden growing?
