I told myself this year while going to the boys in California during the month of May, I wasn't going to do much as far as a vegetable garden this year. That's because I would plant and weed like crazy before I left and then when I came home it would just be a jungle out there. I have gotten tired of coming home right when the humidity would kick in and try to work out in it. I'm not getting any younger and the humidity, it's not letting up either. But I cannot handle a jungle in my veggie patch. Literally it drives me nuts.
So that's what I've been doing in the morning, every morning since I've been back. I will go out to the veggie patch and work until I can't handle it anymore. After being in California with no humidity, I come back a wuss every time. It takes me at least a week to acclimate back.
Yesterday was the best day I've had so far this week, I lasted till 10:30. But not today I barely made an hour. With the humidity being around 70 to 75%, oh I about died out there.
So here are some before and after photos of this week. I can say that I did accomplish something, but it sure doesn't look like much.
It is a jungle out there.
I did get the tomatoes weeded, laid the soaker hose and mulched. Now they just need their cages put in place.
I weeded the sweet potatoes and did loose a couple.
and the white potatoes.
Also weeded and discarded some mature plants where the cabbage and the peppers are planted
