Back in September of last year, Bulldog Man and I we went to an estate sale and several yard sales, and came back with quite a few great finds. One of our favorite finds is a fertilizer spreader……the type you attach to your lawn tractor. It was originally priced for $5.00; we picked it up for $4.00; can’t beat that price…..especially if it works……and it does. Bulldog Man and I are very happy with our purchase.
The Yukon Gold potatoes are growing nicely, they keep popping through the straw which I've laid on top of each plant to protect from the extreme sun. It’s time once again to lay some straw over the top of each plant.
I planted spinach between each row of lettuce; it’s started popping out of the ground. Excuse the picture, it’s a bit blurry.
Bulldog Man and I have prepared a garden box for several of my tomato plants. The soil, compost, and peat are mixed and ready for seedlings. This year, I decided I wanted wind breaks attached to this garden box to protect my tomato plants from the wonderful winds of Oklahoma. Bulldog Man, with some help for me, made two wind breaks from recycled wood. The breaks were made for the north and south sides of the garden box, each break is removable. I can remove one or both breaks to work on my tomato plants or just leave the breaks in place. You can say I’m a happy girl……now I can gradually bring my tomato plants out of the greenhouse, get them used to the temperature outside, and then plant them in this garden box with wind protection.
