What did you do in your garden today?

Today I snipped suckers from my tomato plants and checked the water levels in my self watering containers.

I watered it and worked out a trade. I will send some seascape strawberries to my Grand Mother and my Grand Father will send some grape vines that are cold hardy!!

I also thought about the next video I wanted to shoot. Still torn ;) I will have to figure it out as I want to shoot it tomorrow.

So far this morning I picked a couple of ripe tomatoes (Heirloom Bali - one of my absolute favorites for flavor). Then I checked for hornworms and was planning on picking spinach but had to go and help my daughter load up horses to take to the vet. Lots more gardening on the agenda yet for today. We're experiencing some unseasonably cool weather here in Texas. It was only 64 degrees this morning when I went out into the garden. That is unheard of here in Texas in July! Sure enjoying it!

Well, I don't have time in the morning before work. But yesterday after work I picked a couple of Tomatoes and cucumbers. My daughter ate the cucumber before I could get it in the house. haha

Pulled out the beans & the cukes. Started pulling the last of the tomatoes.

Only things left are japs, okra & the melons.

Picked my first greenbeans of the season and watered. Picking up some plant food tonight. Its a perfect time to get it into the soil as we have been getting rain on and off for several days now (and due for several more)

I didn't do anything in the garden today, but I did can 7 quarts of dill pickles by using up the last of the cucumber crop. I am going to try growing cucumbers this fall and I am going to start more dill in August. Haven't tried to grow fall cucumbers and I don't know if dill will germinate and live until cooler weather, but I am going to try it. I only started gardening last fall, so almost everything is an experiment.

Weeding today (YUCK!!) and hopefully getting the rest of the stone laid down so I don't have to weed again.

No need to water mine for the last two days, nothing but rain in our forecast.

Built a new trellace for the cukes:



It stands about 4' tall so I would imagine it would be more than enough for 1 plant.

Also finished weeding and forgot I had some roofing slate layin around so I decided to lay some down to walk on:





I know they are a bit fragile but will cover the ground and prevent me from having to do any weeding for quite some time. It doesn't look horrible by any means and was cheaper than spending another $80-$100 for stone for the rest of the garden.
