GARDEN ROUND-UP

     We’ve been blessed this year with a great beautiful garden; as I’m sure you’ve seen.  I am so thankful everytime I go out to pick something or see a plant finally starting to bare.  Speaking of starting to bare; the okra is finally flowering. YEAH!  Dad planted it on June 1 and it has been a long month and a half of okra TLC.  We’ve pulled grass, fertilized it, and watered it just about every evening because of the 100 degree days we’ve been consistently having.  The sandy soil in our garden doesn’t hold water very long unlike a dark rich soil would.
     As of today all we have left in the garden is okra, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, and watermelon.  The squashes are not doing well in this HOT weather we’ve been having and I’ve been putting off pulling them up.  I really hate to pull up a plant that is still green.
