Since it seems we have some new readers, I thought I should remind everyone why the weekly update segment is called “What Up With That?”. Before you open 1)Prepare to have that hilarious song stuck in your head for between 3 hours and 12 days. 2)The views expressed on the fictitious show What Up With That and real show SNL are not endorsed by Christ Church, Genesis Gardens, or most of rational humanity. This link is for entertainment purposes only and should not be opened if you are a serious person or have ever considered yourself offended. Yes, so that is where the name came from. So here we go (oooo-eeeee…..)
What has been -
Seth and I hit the garden on Saturday. I was distracted by work issues and forced to use my phone as a phone instead of a camera and neglected to take any photographs other than this one of a fuzzy caterpillar on the red okra
We did get our work done. We weeded, watered, fertilized, tied up the tomatoes with twine for the 73rd time. I got out and slung the sling blade to take down the humongous weeds outside the fence. I even found a ready to harvest watermelon (from the melon ring by the sign, remember?) once I cleared the space a bit. I don’t know what the weeds are. They look like weed but I assume they are not as 1/3 of Austin is not out there smoking them. Whatever they are, they grow well there.
Annie Crawford came out to water this week and had good reports on tomato growth and overall thrift of the garden. Thanks, Annie!
What is yet to be -
No Saturday work crew. I will be at my real job. I think I may hit the garden Sunday post church, but no one else should have to see it in the mid-day sun. It’ll get you down.
- Hold tight! Fall is coming
- Weed, water, harvest and pray.
Volunteer schedule is coming, I promise!
