Thursday I waited for the sun and wind to dry out the garden before I attempted to enter it. It's a fight with thistle this year. It's everywhere. I have blisters, even though I used gloves.
Good news! I got to the other side of the green peppers, and the beets, but it is still very wet. And I am not certain yet, if the entire row will survive. I left the weeds in between the rows, but weeded out the plants and in between them. The extra weeds under my feet helped prevent me from sinking too much.
Friday, I had to make another library trip, but I needed to once again wait for the garden to dry out. Thankfully, we had an entire day of no rain. The sun even appeared once in a while.
The snow peas are on, and I will hopefully get more today. The shell peas are on, but the plants themselves are half the height of the snow peas. I'm worried our harvest will be small for those. I did not plant enough green beans this year. I don't know how I messed that up, but those plants look good despite weeds.
We are still getting some greens. If the weather gives us a break, the spinach might be okay. Otherwise, it will be the first to die off from too much rain.
We have squash on now, but I can't get in to weed - too wet there too.
I'm a bit worried I won't get any more radishes. I checked that too, and it's in a wet area.
I started to weed out the broccoli, but it rained last night again, so this morning I have to wait and see if it will stay dry. The weeds in that garden are taller than the plants themselves, and the broccoli is already on the plants. It's a race against the rain this year.
It will be an interesting year, as to what get harvested.
Update on Hubby's sister. She is doing well since she was taken off her life support. So far, she is breathing on her own and the doctors are pleased with her progress. Thank you for your prayers. Yesterday, they had her up and sitting in a chair.
As for me? This week my nerves have been unraveled at the seams - some events I cannot explain. I hope to get a steaming cup of tea, regain normal blood pressure, rid my head of the nuisance pounding, and find calmness in my life once again.
