Yesterday I worked on the same area as I did the day before, just on the other side. This time, though, I only put in one length of edging, and just a little bit of mulch. Why didn't I complete this bed like I did on other side? Well, eventually, it will join and become a part of the East bed. And that's going to have to wait until a bigger project day!
I also cut off the wire cage I had on a tree. I had put the wire around the tree trunk so the cats wouldn't damage it. It worked great, but that was quite a few years ago, and the tree trunk was being squeezed by the wire, so off it went. Actually, I have been meaning to do this chore for about 3 years! I just now made myself actually take the 5 minutes to do it.
Wow, that could almost be embarrassing to admit!
Lastly, I weeded just a fraction of the East bed. I could have, would have, should have done more, but it's a big bed. Instead, I decided one hour of work was plenty. After all, it was Friday! (Sometimes any excuse will do to get out of the heat!)
Before I quit, though, I decided to harvest the tomatoes. Did they need it? Oh, yes they did! I got an entire box full. They will be used to make salsa! Yum! (Us Texans love salsa!) I had meant to weed the sweet potatoes, but I completely forgot to do this! Oops! Maybe I'll remember tomorrow.
And I'll leave you with a joy from the garden:
The water lilies are looking beautiful right now!
