This my entry into the #greenestthumb Challenge where this week ill show how keep my plants growing healthy.
First off being a just casual gardener, I set out only to have fun with my backyard.
When i started almost a year ago now the backyard was barren, clay and rocks, a old a prehistoric lake bed. Lots of fossles laying around. Not the greatest for plants in the ground.
So to start things off i bought all my soil and did everythingabove ground. Starting with just pots and bags of soil it began. Over the months i added a greenhouse, and then raised beds.
At the raised bed point daily watering became a chore and if was not home and the plants did not get watered some times they would suffer.
So i bought a automatic water system that mists every morning and waters the yard.
Clearly the water mellons have grown out from unplanned area, same with many other plants.
By not havinf expectations i have let most everything grow while just picking the fuit and old leaves.
I planted flowers to bring pollinators, and for winter time i have broccoli, cabbage, and lettuce i just plannted.
that ocra stalk is just huge!!
