I've been posting garden updates on Mondays but nothing has really happened lately. No, wait, a few things happened:
It rained a lot, so the wagon spent a lot of time in the kitchen under the light.
I put the wagon outside when it was sunny for a few hours and a stinking BUNNY ate a whole pepper plant AND a thyme plant.
A few days later, he ate two tomatoes.
Yesterday, he ate another tomato plant. (A Brandywine!) (IN BROAD DAYLIGHT!) (He is a ballsy bunny.)
I began to think about acquiring a pellet gun.
But then decided that if I DID acquire a pellet gun I would not tell the internet about it because, well, PETA crazies know how to use Google.
So, I will leave this topic at THINKING about getting a pellet gun. Nothing more! Just thinking about it casually!
On one plant, some mysterious white spots appeared. Not mildew. Just spots. On others, they got a little yellowy. I'm not sure what this is all about and haven't bothered to Google.
They are tallish (six inches or so) and need to get in the ground. I'm HOPING to tackle it on Saturday but I need to build those stupid raised beds, find some soil and construct a fence for the rabbits. This feels like a lot to do on a single Saturday, but we'll see. if I get the beds built by Monday, I'll be happy.
I am planning to weigh my summer bounty and tally it all up and see how much my harvest is worth, as compared to the local price of heirloom tomatoes. I'm keeping careful tabs on what I'm spending, so I'm sort of interested to see where this goes. (I mean, I have almost TWO DOZEN tomato plants to stick in the ground, surely they will give me back the cost of at least the seeds, right?) My objective isn't to come out ahead financially, it's just more of a curiosity for me.
Plus, I got this awesome scale last year for Christmas and it's just so EASY when I have that in my kitchen so, why not?
That's it. Some rain, some bunny rabbits, some procrastination. See? I told you. MEH.
